I am in need of some guidance. Aren't we all?
I would appreciate some direction as to not make this issue worse and possibly correct it.
Long story short, I had shop put in UCA, LCA's and panhard bar. All non-adjustable BMR.
And after about a month, when I braked hard I would hear a clunk. Hard to tell from where, and shop couldn't find anything.
Now I get a clunk/thud when putting car in reverse. Sometimes when braking hard. Steering feels restrictive.
And make a clunk when I let food off brake putting into park. Much more noticeable today. And when I turned left into a spot.
Sounds for sure coming from back seat area.
I am thinking that they did not tighten the suspension with it on the ground or loaded.
My plan was to grab some dollys and see if I can crawl under there to loosen all the bolts and then torque down.
Is there anything else I should try to check? And any recomendations on how to swear less when doing this?
Car is 2006 GT A4, CAI, Tuner, Subframe connectors, UCA, LCA, panhard rod bar, 3:73 gears.
Did you put in an aftermarket UCA with the factory mount? If so that's probably causing your clunk. The factory mount has a hole larger than the bolt- it's apparently not obvious with the factory arm and rubber bushing but apparently very noticeable once you put in an aftermarket UCA with a poly bushing. You need to either pick up some anti-clunk washers (easiest route) or get an aftermarket upper arm mount (more difficult, requires removing the rear seat and dropping the gas tank some)
