    My '96 T Sport A4 has developed a bit of wooly handling over the last few weeks. Also getting a light knock from the suspension. The car seems to have a bit of a mind of it's own and any change to the road surface has the steering wheel squirming.

    Where should I start looking?

    Ooo. Sounds like a good excuse to get an Eibach item on there then. IS it worth poly bushing the assembly?

    My last A4 went through control arms at a daft rate. Doesn't feel quite the same as that though.

    Wanted to just change all the balljoints for peace of mind by nearly had a heart attack at how much it would cost in parts:ohmy:

    Not sure if this is any help but on my previous wrx I did have a problem where the steering went a bit funny and the steering wheel would wobble in my hands at the smallest of issues on the road and it turned out to be a worn out little rubber bush in the power steering unit, cost me all of 2 pounds fitted.... maybe get them to check that first, may save you a lot of money....
