    i have a crazy squek in my fron passenger side when i go over bumps. Another car at the lot where i bought it from had the same problem. Has any one heard of this or know the fix. Almost sounds like it's coming from the upper control arm, but that is just a guess.

    I had the same problem. My first guess was a worn out sway bar bushings. But Ive read a few thread about this, and theyre saying that it has something to do with the caliper.

    I had it on rear when I first bought the car, the previous owner told me it was the anti-roll bar bushes. I got these changed and it made no difference. I had several people look at it with no joy then got my mechanic to put it up a ramp for a good fondle and it turned out to be a broken rear spring.

    I had a similar thing when I fitted my coilovers, I had replaced ALL of the bushes at the same time.
    turned out to be the shocker, sprayed the shaft with some brake cleaner then some spray lube (Duck Oil) and sorted it straight out,
    probably not that on yours, but you never know and easy enough to try

    An easy way to find the problem is to systematically WD40/lube each joint/bush then test drive until the noise has gone it'll most probably come back again but you'll know what's causing it.

    Had it on my old 2.8 A4 after have spring fitted turned out to be one of the control arms in the end.

    I have this on my S3, i have changed the ARB bushes and after a few days the noise came back again, someone else has advised it may be the top mounts on the suspension, it only comes from the front, but I havent had a chance to look at the top mounts, do you think it would be worth wd40'ing them???
