> Help, I need a copy of the front strut assembly diagram.
> Last Friday, I had my new H&R springs and Blistein Sports installed on
> S4 at my local tire shop. Along with the struts, I got the boots,
> mounts and tie rod ends replaced.
> The problem: when driving, I noticed a clunking noise over rough
> surfaces, when braking and on hard accelaration. When I contacted the
> tire shop they said that this was normal due to the springs settling.
> Saturday, I met with a group of Audi fans from the Nothern Cal
> great guys, when I showed them my problem, we noticed that the top of
> the strut moved up and down excesivelly when pushing on the bumper.
> The top metal plate that is directly over the strut nut had almost a
> half inch separation from the alignment plate rubber bushing. This
> gap increased
> loading and unloading the suspension. This also recreated the noise.
> Monday, the shop will check my suspension again. What I need from you
> is a copy of the exploded diagram from the Bentley manual or from
> Audi showing
> proper order of all the bushings and such. Unfortunatelly, I do not
> own copy of the manual yet.
> Many thanks in advance,
