About the Front Multi-Link Audi A4 Control Arm Suspension
Most 1996 - on Audi models have a sophisticated multi-link front control arm suspension. The Audi A4 struts are mounted onto the control arm and the integral Audi A4 control arm ball joint is at an upside down installation position.
The weight of an Audi A4 chassis rests on the upper side of the control arm ball joint. Such significant dynamic loads can lead to eventual failure of the control arm bushings hydro filling. Too, due to the force of gravity, the lubricant in the control arm ball joint flows from the upper side downwards into the sealing ring. This loss of lubrication leads to wear and eventual failure of the integral Audi A4 control arm ball joint. Audi A4 owners become aware of this by the front suspension squeaking noise when braking.
Our Audi A4 control arms and control arm kits are a great replacement option. We offer several improved Audi A4 control arm options. The materials used in these improved Audi control arms prove to be a long-term repair solution for Audi control arm problems. All control arms are made under O.E. required aluminium alloy 6082 material. The control arm bushing material is composed of an updated resilient material for improved steering input, handling and durability. Audi A4 control arms and control arm kits also include improved control arm rubber dust boots, made of a high-quality material which prevents cracking and exposure of the ball joint as well as better moly grease for less wear and more miles. We also feature heavy duty Audi tie rod ends that feature a larger ball joint diameter for more structural surface area of the ball. This results in a higher strength tie rod for more longevity. Audi A4 control arms and control arm kits are sourced from renowned high-quality suspension control arm manufacturers that specialize specifically in the area of steering and suspension parts. We've used these suspension parts in our own service facility and have had great results.
