    Rear Shocks??

    Ok, am not totally happy with my New Sportback. Its not holding the road in corners as well as my last one, I've noticed this for the last couple of weeks.

    At high speed it seems twitchy when cornering, then on Sunday when driving back on the drive I heard a distinct sping creak from the rear left not once but a couple of times.

    Now I know from previous threads that the people with shock problems talk about a banging noise, I don't have that. But could my 6 week old car need new shocks???

    have you checked to make sure they've removed the yellow/green transit braces from the shocks?

    Are these transit braces easy to spot?

    It seems to be a worryingly common feature on the A4s.
