    Poor Handling Audi A4 2.0 TDI

    Hello,

    Just joined up as was curious about an issue my car[COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] seems to have gotten.

    Before the cold period we had the car drove and handled spot on, after the winter, the car seems to handle a lot worse and quite dangerous at times. I don't have any confidence in it. It seems very wolly and off balanced when at higher speeds.

    The car is an Audi A4 B7 (05) 2.0 TDI 140 BHP with Multi-Tronic [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Gearbox[/COLOR][/COLOR].

    Does anyone know what could be causing this, it doesn't seem to shake at high speeds but has been harder to keep on a straight path.

    Many Thanks,

    snapped spring, worn ball joint's, worn track rod end, snapped ARB drop link, could be anything but without looking and checking your only guessing
