After several years of loyal service, all of the stressed rubber bits (suspension bushings, engine/trans/rear diff/front and rear subframe mounts) will stop doing their little bit. The car will feel *like new* when you replace them.
If your A-arm bushings need to be replaced, instead of using the original type, you might be able to use the old-style ur-q bushings. They are a little stiffer and last longer. Only the early '90 cars ('90 CQ up to #6000, stock bushing P/N 857 407 181) can use the ur-q bushings. The Audi P/N for the ur-q bushing is 811 407 181.
If you want even more stiffness for quicker steering response, 2Bennett Audimotive (530-758-7325) carries delrin replacement bushings.
