    Suspension Clunk

    Hi there,

    I'm a regular viewer/part time poster on the 8L section, but my parents have an '06 2.0t avant, and I have a couple of questions that I was hoping you guys could answer.

    1. It's done over 100,000 miles and the suspension is tired to say the least! Anyone got any opinions on a spring/shock combination for Ł400 or less? Not really interested in coilovers, as they're looking for a sporty, but not really firm ride. (Not firmer then OEM)

    2. It makes a clunking noise fairly regularly when the turning right and left, and occasionally over bumps. This clunk comes from the N/S front, in the foot well area. It has had the suspension arm changed at Audi, but that didn't solve it.

    Any ideas/information would be gratefully received.

    Sorry for the essay!

    Thanks

    The noise is most likely a joint with a split in it so it will have dried up, as for spring shock combo got AP set up for Ł325 from DPM performance. check em out and keep us up to date.

    Possibly, check there as tight as can be as this will cause a terrible noise if there even slightly loose, check control arms also.
