Hey I'm new here so I don't know if I'm asking my question at the right place. I've got some concerns about an a4 I just got. It's a 1997 2.8 with 25,000 miles.It's been running great but two things happenedrecently. 1 I've been toldI need to replace the front axles soon.[:'(] And the other day I hit a shallow spot off a shoulder, heard a noise I didn't like and now I feel a bump over in the front passenger side.
Could it be related to the axle i needto replace or maybe a suspensiong problem? I don't think I dented the wheel b/c it was in the grass where thewhole was and it wasn't to abrupt. 2 I feel as though my accelleration anddeaccelleration is notnearas smooth as it was.She seemsjerky picking up speed and whenI down-shift. I don't know if this could be something serious. I don'tknow anything about working on this care so I'm a bit nervous. Any Advice?
