    Hi evreyone,

    I have just had my bushes changed on the front wishbones because they were f**ked.

    I had noticed a massive rumble and vibration through the wheel and at the front of the car when going out of a multi storey carpark, had the bushes changed thinking this would solve the problem. Went out of the same car park tonight and it's worse.

    Any ideas?

    if it only happens in that multi storey it might just be the road surface, I know the M1 A1 link road makes it sound like the wheels are falling off your car.

    It also happens over most bumps and even when I turn into my gravel drive.

    It wasn't like this when I bouht the car, and other cars on the same car park didn't do this.

    Standard bushes? Follow ELSA for the Torque settings reattaching the wishbones?

    Had the car aligned since the wishbones came off???

    YeahI'm using standard bushes, the guy who did the bushes used to be an Audi mech, I trust him and I know he is good. The car hasn't been aligned yet no, also I had this problem before the bushes were changed.

    Ah Nick I had the same problem, I fitted no Audi bushes the first time and this is what happened to me! I then took them off replaced with OEM parts and all was good!

    I went down the alignment route too, wasted my money it wasn't the alignment.

    I think i got my first bushes from CAFCO or German Swedish and they just did do the job. Go get bushes from the stealer and solve the problem,ok!
