    I fitted 30mm lowering spring to my car and once fitted it dropped 23mm....the car is a SPORT model A3 TDI SPORTBACK.

    Ive noticed a faint knock when coming on and off speed humps,ive replaced top mounts and knocking is still there and ive replace both anti-roll bar drop links........

    could it be the anti-roll bar bushes? also ive heard that you have to replace the anti-roll bar as you cant buy the bushes is this true?
    This has only happened once cars been lowered.

    What could it be?

    A3 2.0 TDI SPORT ---SPORTBACK 5 DOOR----

    ARB bushes would be my guess, they tend to knock slightly when the car is lowered due to change of angle. As the bush thingies split

    it only does it coming off or on speed humps........worth trying the arb bushes if they come off separatley.........audi say you have to buy complete arb.
