I am sure this has been covered a million times before but,
went on a journey from Manchester to Birmingham over the weekend, the car behaved perfectly well. As soon as i came off the motorway and onto a 30mph zone, i heard some clunking from the rear drivers side (Almost as if it was coming from under the passenger seats) - it got progressively louder the more i drove it (had no choice but to carry on going to my destination). thought it may have been a bush or something.
Anyway got the car back home to Manchester and took it to a local mechanic - looks like passenger rear side Shocker is leaking (which is strange since most of the noise is coming from the drivers side rear).
Anybody have any advice as to what to do in terms of repair as i have read alot of horror stories regarding DRC online. Obviously i want to avoid breaking the bank.
Do i replace both rear shocks and recharge system? what about the central valves? i guess if they hold pressure once recharged they are fine? or do i have to replace all four shocks and central valve (correct me if i am using the wrong terminolgy?)
Or do i scrap DRC altogether and go for aftermarket coilover kit?
i called Audi today and they told me the rear shocks are around £200 each and the central valve costs £900 and there are 2 of them!
any advice/experiences ?
