S4 steering sound on full lock

Something odd with going on full lock, sounds like extreme bass sound/juddering in the cockpit.

Wondered if this is a tracking issue or something else?

Its pretty annoying and feels like the tyres are scrubbing at low speed on full lock, left and right.

It's an S4, so yes it's quattro. As Darren said, totally normal.

Remember to limit the time on full lock - there is advice about this in the owners manual.

Haven't actually read through it, is it around excess wear to bushings or something like that?

I always notice the "Quattro clonk" the most, when driving slowly in tight indoor spaces such as multistory car parks... spooks me every time, even tho i know what it is lol

Is this the creaking/clunking I hear when maneuvering out of a parking space? Ffs, I've been chasing that noise for ages lol

Quick update, the harsh vibrsting/bass sound I was getting has been greatly reduced by getting it aligned!

Hugely more enjoyable to drive! Next up is some stone chip repairs

I noticed the description on the sheet was different from mine. I remember them pulling half my boot out to get to the suspension plate or something lol

Has your left rear been thrown out a bit further? Can just see the arrow.
