    1.9 TDi suspension problem

    I have just bought an A4 1.9TDi. When I go over a bump / pot hole and the suspension expands after damping the bump, the car wobbles to the left. Like the back end wobbles to the left. I think its on passanger side, not to sure. Could this be a buggered spring, bush or shockie? Any ideas? Also one of the wheels needs balanced, not sure if this is connected.

    Cheers

    Hi did you get this problem sorted? seem to be having the same issue with mine of late where the back sways right - feels like I'm on a swing bike after sudden swerve or going into pot holes. definitely need to get this looked at asap - idea feedback welcomed

    Many thanks

    shocks can be checked by doing the bounce test. Open the boot and press down on one corner then release. If the shocks are good the car should rise, then settle immediately, if it oscillates then the shocks are worn

    Could be the rear axle bushes?
