This could be either tie rod ends, or control arm bushings, or both.
On some, but not all S4s, there was a recall on the lower arms. The
failure I had, about 75k also, was one of the 4 upper arms. You can
buy some of the bushings from GPR and press them in yourself, but first
you need to find out which of many failed. I did nt go that route.
