    Hi. I have a 2005 s line 2ltr tdi 140. The suspension has become abit crashy over bumps, pot holes,man holes and un even surfaces. Has quite a thud from the suspension. It's only started to do it this last 10,000 miles or so. It comes and goes though. It seems to be fine when roads are wet. Takes all of the above quite smoothly and quietly. I know s line suspension is quite harsh anyway, but this seems worse. I'm assuming something is worn and needs replaced. Maybe something needs greased due to the fact it's fine with wet roads.

    Any help with what might need replaced and rough costs?

    Thanks

    Does it seem to be coming from the front or the back?

    My car was a bit similar from the front. I hade the bushes changed on the upper arms and it was fine again.

    Thanks for reply, seems to be mostly front.

    Are the bushes expensive to replace.

    Thanks

    I just had the full arms changed with the new bushes attached. NOt sure of the price TBH as the company paid but I don't think it was too bad.
