I did a visual inspection today. It appears the bolts backed out. I can't
find any fault in the suspension at all. The control arm is fine. The hub
looks fine so does the subframe. Even the threads in the hub look fine.
the only thing I can think of is the alignment shop removed the wheel and
did not torque it. I did check the other wheels and they were all loose.
Not drastically though.
Thanx for the kind words.
Enough Audis to give plenty of headaches.
