Here's info on the driver's side front suspension stuff, on my 1990 Coupe
Prices from Linda @ Carlsen last week:
RF hub - $198
Front wheel bearing - $69
Control arm bushings - $7.15 each
Front ball joint - $72
Front tie rod end - $16
Replacing everything except bearing and control arm bushings is fairly easy.
Bearing is a) a trick or b) easy using Audi tools. Control arm bushings are
a) a trick or b) easy using a press. Any of this except the bearing will
require an alignment job.
