so I had Audi-Gilbert look at it, they did the TSB with the new pads and it appears the grinding is essentially gone, the only time it does it is when I turn into my driveway going like 1 mph and wheel is turned hard, but no more grinding when I slow down to a traffic lights, so I hope this fix actually works long term. I do however have brake squeal now at low speeds but that's ok

If it still grinds at low speed, it will only get worse over time. They haven't fixed it, they just changed the friction coefficient and it's moved the resonance for now. Once they bed in, it'll come back. Been there, done that.

Can you be more specific , which control arms, and which bushings, if the OEM version then wouldn’t this repeat when they age or wear out in a few years? These cars are only several years old. Or are they a different type of bushings ?
