I'm not sure it would be worth all the effort... Your rear brakes don't do a whole lot...

Why do you want to swap the rear subframe? If you want s4 brakes in the rear just get adapters from 034, s4 carriers, calipers and some 300mm rotors along with brake lines and you are good to go.

swapping rear subframes is not fun and sounds like a lot of work for just a brake upgrade

he only needs to swap the front spindles and and maybe the half shafts or he could go with something custom that bolts right up

If you do go ahead and swap subframes, check out our Subframe Bushing kits. We offer a stiffer then stock, and full motorsport aluminum set. I don't recommend the motorsport for daily driving, but the stiffer then stock will keep good ride quality and offer way less deflection between subframe and chassis.

I have an S4 front and rear subframe on my project A4. Its not a terribly fun job.

Aligning the damn holes of the subframe after installing the new bushings were a biotch. I went with the full aluminums, but I cannot tell you how the ride. The do looks pretty as hell though!
