    I had my front & rear ARB's changed today as my S3 had a knocking-creaking noise coming from the front.

    The noise is still there mostly over speed bumps or if I move the car very slowly forwards or backwards.

    So whats next?

    Top mounts maybe......I just hope it's not the rack :(

    have you tried the trackrod ends? a mate had a clonky tre on his S3, other things to check are the suspension bushes. its unlikely to be the rack IMO but you could check the rack mountings?

    I'd say the track rod ends as had the same problem on my 8L S3 a few weeks after I bought it!
