    if there's play in them, then yes.
    jack the car up and remove the wheel, then tug the control arms etc. and see if there's play in any of 'em. replace any that aren't solid

    the bushes get worn and add play but dont generally knock

    knocking is normally the balljoints, which the MOT guy WILL check and WILL fail it on

    it can be a serious **** of a job, and not something i'd be wanting to do in a carpark away from my tools. On mine i had to drill out the pinch bolt that holds the top two arms in as it was siezed solid. Its also far easier job if you remove the entire upright from the car, meaning brake calipers and CV's unbolted. Theres another thread that should be pretty near the top thats titled something along the lines of "how do i get the front suspension apart". Have a read of that as most of the foibles are covered there.

    I replaced mine without any issues, the complete set, front and rear.

    @ Alpine: Drive down to Woodbridge, and I'll do the job!

    I was driving behind you 2 weeks ago, near Bexleyheath.
    I was in a 2004 black A4 Avant TDI 130 Sport.
