Good stuff. Did you have any judder under braking before you replaced the control arms? Iíve replaced all discs and pads now, front discs twice and Iím getting judder under braking. Itís doing my nut in. Wondering if that can be attributed to the control arms, given my discs and pads are new.

CURRENT CAR: Quartz gray 2008 A8 3.0 TDi. My installs: (2009) AMI and ViseeO Tune2Air WMA3000A, generic RVC, Westfalia OEM towbar, D4 19s and S8 MFSW with paddles.

LAST CAR: Black 2001 A2 1.4 TDi, winter pack, leather/alcantara sports seats, DIS and BrokenSky

No juddering since I replaced the discs and pads.

Its usually the bottom arms that cause that. Please replace with genuine ones, lemforder or meyle etc. Learnt that on an a4 b6, cheap ones didn't last 12 months!
