    How can i tell if the anti-roll bar link arm needs replacing on my 2006 A3 TDI...SPORTBACK ?
    Do the knock rattle?
    i get a very slight very faint knock when i go over a speed hump or cobbled road....only since ive lowered it.
    I was going to replace the shocker topmounts but they looked ok and i was told look at the links.

    wedge a bar of some sort inbetween the anti roll bar link in and something else and force it a bit and there should be a teeny bit of play but not too much...

    Mine was perished on my golf and you could see the bush was loose too.

    for how much they are.......im going pick some up monday and fit em...see from there....its either them or topmounts

    I was told the bars tend to get a lot of pressure on them once the cars ride height is lowered.
