    Hi all

    It's hard to explain, but it happen 2 times since last month, while turning from a stop the car feel like it's slipping on ice for a fraction of a second, but i'm on nice summer asphalt.

    I have a 2015 S6

    Sounds like 'quattro walk', which is the jitter you get from low speed turning. You should be able to recreate the issue by idling or under light throttle and making tight turns. It's an expected result of the torsen AWD.

    Sounds similar to the feeling I'd get in my 2014 A7. Check out my suspension post. I just completely redid my suspension/steering and posted some more details. I was getting lazy turn-in and a feeling like the wheel slipped or the front dove down a little when turning.

    What I found is that the C7 suspension is designed to float and return to center by keeping tension on the control arms and guide link. You can really see this once the tie rod ball joint is off of the bearing housing. If one bushing is worn, it'll create less tension and make the steering fell sloppy.

    I'd check the guide link's hydro-bearing for leaks and just check the control arm bushings for excessive wear or deformation. The steering tie rods are tough because mine didn't show any visual symptoms or feel that bad, but replacing them made a difference. Also, there are TONS of updated parts replacing earlier versions. From memory, all of the bushings and hydro-bearing have been updated. The easiest to do is replace the inner and outer tie rods, regrease the steering gear and replace the boots, but it requires an alignment afterwards. Doing the lower control arm, ball joint and guide link weren't that bad either. The upper control arms require the fork assembly being pulled, though.
