    Buy some spray grease, liberally smother your ARB bushes front and rear and if it shuts them up for a while, you know what it is.

    surely bushes shouldnt become a problem untill the car has covered well over a hundred thousand miles.reading the amount of posts on here concerning the subject audi should have made this a recall.

    vw golfs are the same, they are small bushes for the stress that goes through them. not a big job to do the bushes
