This is covered in Technical Bulletin 46 92-01, "Installation of 1992 MY V8
Brake System to Eliminate Complaints of Steering Wheel Shimmy during
Braking."  The part number for the WHOLE kit is (was) 441 498 615;  part
numbers for individual components aren't provided.  Since Audi doesn't make
such changeouts anymore, I'm guessing the whole kit isn't available anymore
(though one might be on some dealer's shelf somewhere).  I don't know if you
can use the dual piston caliper setup off the earlier 5ktq cars--the p/n for
brake pads is different from 10v cars to 20v cars.
