Hey hey-<p>I haven't pushed the car much, but on a recent road trip to Palm Springs I experienced the sidehop for the first (and only) time. I'm taking the car to the dealer this coming week- should I ask for the rear suspension bushings upgrade while it's still under warranty?<p>Also, last week I had the dealer look at the driver-side front wheel while it was in for the 7500 mi service. There's a noticeable popping sound (like a rubber "pop") that comes from the front when driving (slowly) over any small vertical grade change- like speed bumps, inclined driveways, sidewalk aprons.... The dealer stated they retorqued the suspension. That seemed to work for about 3 days. Yesterday the pops came back. Any ideas?<p>06 S60R<br>03 325ci

You may have finally hit a road that 4C doesn't like.

That's what I thought as well. It's only happened once- it was probably just a freak occurence.<br>Thanks!<br>

If it happens once it will happen again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>That being said you WILL get strange noises from time to time. <br>If it's only on<B> rare</B> <B>occasions</B> and they don't bother you, it's almost normal for these cars leave it alone, dealer <I>may</I> make it worse
