RS4 become very "knocking and rattling" underneath and all four corners, HELP

Post by kevsterz1967rs4 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 2:36 pm

I've only had my RS4 about3 months when I got it I was very happy I'd got a belter however these last couple of weeks it's become noisey underneath, like all four corners rattling an knocking over slightest bumps in the road. I just think it's strange all corners gone together at same time....any ideas

Which model of RS4, I assume B7?
Get it on a ramp with a pry bar, it'll be something easy to trace. May be bushes, track rod ends, DRC suspension.
RS4 B7, Mugello Blue, K&W V3 & HR ARBs, set up by Centre Gravity, Milltek Valved Non Res & cat bypass pipes, BMC air filter, braided hoses, DOT 5.1, Terraclean, MRC Full Carbon Clean, MRC remap 448PS 477NM, 20" S7 alloys with 4mm spacers & Hawke spigots 66.6 > 57.1, AP Racing front discs.

Mine got like that and it was the DRC suspension. It was leaking badly.

Don't overlook the obvious, check all your wheel bolts are actually tight

Wheels could have been swapped in a hurry for sale etc
