... I've been meaning to do so ... I wasn't sure which part we were talking about ... if this is the bushing where the arm that goes from the subframe to the bottom of the strut (with the attachment to the anti-sway bar in the middle ... I certainly do have recent BTDT.  On #2 this was one of the parts that was replaced in the recent work I had done.  I purchased the replacement bushings from Audi ... they worked just great!  On #344 the rubber has gotten so bad that the front end clunks when going over a bump.  I need to get this fixed ASAP ... as soon as I find the other pair of bushings I bought!
