    i would suspect that the noise can transfer ... it puts stress on both joints when you turn... jack up the car and turn the wheel by hand ... even better if you can watch the joint... and see how much play it has... if you can move the joint by hand you'll see how much movement it has... if it was the tires... a quick test is to take off the tire and roll it ... let go of the tire and see if it rolls if it wanders off you may have a belt that has shifted on the tire.

IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

I have a 00 audi a4 quattro, occasionally while taking a right hand turn ususlly from a stop, there is a clicking noise I believe to be comming from rear right? But the main problem seems to be vibartion...


the clicking and vibration in the front end sounds like a tie rod in need of replacement possibly due to potholes. Could be a bent alloy wheel from the same as well which could be causing all of the above problems

1996 Audi A4 Quattro has a noisy rear differential


It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.
