    Big Thanks... And some suspension help pls!

    Hey Guys,
    Just like to say thanks to all who helped with my previous thread re my brothers S3's rear end losing traction.
    He had the tracking/camber done today and all 4 wheels were way out. Now all sorted and its perfect!

    We noticed today that there is creaking coming from the passengers side top mounting, it can also be felt through the car when sitting in passenger seat.
    It sounds/feels like rubber of some sort.
    Also the caps on top of strut that can be seen under bonnet moves when steering wheel is turned, is this normal?

    Could the top mounting need replacing or could it just be loose?
    Or could it be something completely different?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks, Graham.

    think its normal for the top mount to move slightly. Also think you can lube them to stop the creak but not 100 % sure.

    I think audi lubed mine when I complained of a squeek

    You can lube it but be wary of what you use, some lubricants can damage the rubber. Take off the top cap and get it right in there.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
