Some call them clunking critters; Control Arms.
Other call'em little god-awful, evil money stealers.

Too bad your car wasn't a year OLDER, than you could have had them replaced
for free due to the AoA Service Action JE..

See your local import mechanic for a quote..

Good Luck!

Subject: [A4] Clunk noise? Suspension Bushings??

For a little while now, I get a clunk noise in the front end of my 01' A4
(~65k).  When I shift the weight to the front during braking, I hear a
deadened clunk.  I tried to check my suspension bushings - wheels up,
pull-push in/out/front/back the top/bottom of the tires - and everything
feels tight.  I had changed my brake pads and rotors about 3 months before
the sound started.  Wheels are torqued properly, so the brake rotors
(PowerSlot's) should not be shifting (right?).  Brake pads fit in nice,
nothing odd.  Am I checking the suspension bushings properly?  Any ideas?
