I wonder what symptoms people experience as the front struts/shocks/dampers
begin to wear out on Audis.
I've got a '98 A4 Quattro, 82,000mi on the odometer. I bought it used, so I
don't know if the front struts have ever been replaced. I'm noticing:
1) a slight "hitch" through the steering wheel when braking at slow speeds
2) a thumping in the front end, when crossing a gutter or a speed bump.
Is replacing the front struts a job a handy person can do, or does it require
professional help? And probably an alignment afterwards?
Thanks for you thoughts.
Famous last words? "It seemed like a good idea at the time ..."
