Why my rear wheel is not straight like the front wheel.........


this is probably from a failed suspension bush and or spring/ shocky . Have it inspected by an accredited suspension specialist . When done ensure that the rear wheels are properly aligned as their alignment affects the front wheel alignment.

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...


General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

Clunking noise from frount left audi a4 avant over speed ramps and bumps


noises are very difficult to diagnose from afar but....as audi use a few rubber bushes for the front suspension,and at approx 70/80k the whole front suspension needs re bushing,im gonna stick my neck out and say you would be wise to go to an audi dealer and pay for a diagnostic check and pray it aint them...... steering vague,car wandering,thumps/bangs,all symptoms.....(when taking cars back in px,we ALWAYS check for this,as its mega expensive).

Suspension


What kind of noise? Is it a humming noise that gets louder as the road speed increases? If so, it's a wheel bearing - A4s eat wheel bearings like popcorn.

1998 Audi a4. I replaced all the control arms and I'm still getting a clunking noise on the drivers side front


Its Probably your strut/ strut mounts... very common problem, Also check your shocks for faliure, strut rod bushings,sway bar link / connectors/bushings. Worst case check cv joints

Rattle under car going over bumps


Take a close look at your springs. My 99 Audi A4 had a creaking rattle that happened when I went over a speed bump or dip in the road, and it turned out the bottom of each rear spring was broken. I replaced them and the noise went away.

Another possibility would be the sway bar end links. Since the sway bar is worked pretty hard, the bushings in the end links will wear out eventually. This can cause some clanking. Look behind the wheel hubs - you should see a short bar or bracket attached to the hub at one end, and to a bar at the other end. The bar will go forward or back a short way, and then across the bottom of the car to the other wheel hub. That's your sway bar. The bushings in the end links (the short attachment bars that anchor it to the wheel hub) or in the body brackets (some cars bold the center of the sway bar to the body with a bushing in a bracket) could be deteriorated and allowing the bar to bang around on the body.

Finally, take a look at the suspension itself. Do any of the bushings where various parts meet appear to be cracked, leaking fluid, or gone entirely? There should be no gaps between any suspension pieces at the points where they meet. If there are, you're missing some bushings and may well have found the source of your noise.
