IE TruFIT Dogbone Mount Insert Kit Install DIY Guide

The following install guide is for IEDTCB1 & IEDTCB2 Dogbone Inserts


Thank you for purchasing another high quality Integrated Engineering product! This instruction guide is used for installation of the Integrated Engineering TrueFIT Dogbone Mount Insert Kit. This kit is recommended to be installed by a professional or experienced technician. Integrated Engineering is not responsible for any damage caused by incorrect installation.

For demonstration purposes we have installed the Dogbone Insert on our MK5 GTI.

Tools required

  • Silicon spray
  • 22mm socket
  • Jack stands or automotive lift
  • Floor jack or transmission jack (if you have an automotive lift)
  • Torque wrench 

Before beginning installation, Open your insert Kit, inspect all components, and verify part quantities.

Kit contents

  • (1)    Small washer
  • (1)    Large washer
  • (1)    IE mount insert
  • (1)    New bolt

Step 1.

Put your car on jack stands or on an automotive lift and identify the dogbone mount bushing located on the subframe.

Step 2.

Remove the 21mm dogbone bushing center bolt.

Step 3.

Apply silicone spray liberally to the new mount insert AND the stock rubber mount. Line up the dogbone insert with the dogbone bushing and press it in by hand part way.

step4Step 4.

Using a transmission or floor jack slowly press the new mount insert into the stock dogbone mount. We recommend using a short 3 inch piece of pipe or a large socket (36mm or similar). Ensure it presses in evenly so it does not tear or bind on either side. Don’t be afraid to release the pressure and realign the socket or 3 inch pipe to ensure the insert presses in straight.

Step 5.

Place the small washer on the inside of the new mount insert.

Step 6.

Place the large washer on the underside of the new mount insert and reinstall the dogbone bushing center bolt. Torque the new bolt provided with the kit to 75 ft/lbs. DO NOT use the factory torque spec as the new bolt provided is not a stretch bolt.

Step 7.

Enjoy your new mount and drink a beer (if you’re 21 and older).

  • Will this work if the car is on ramps? I do not own jacks? I suppose what I'm asking is can it be installed if the front axle is still bearing the weight of the car.
