    Welcome aboard buddy.

    You don't say much about your Avant - FWD or quattro?

    Im getting the same kind of sway, and I was notified by MOT guy that the bushes were worn on the rear and would need replacement by the next MOT. So Im just saving to get some new bushes and of course the labour costs.
