Most you have to order form the dealer...others I was lucky to find cheaper at FCPEURO.com and EUROPAPARTS.com

I went to

pulled the parts for all the bushings and control arms
Had to call in for the part # of all the bolts/nuts etc

Its not cheap...but next week my new subframes (I bought my S8 with rusted ones-got a used ones from a Cali car donor) with new pressed it subframe bushings and KW-v1 coliovers and all bushings, bolts, arms bushings and new Apikol rear diff. mount

It should drive like new! :D

You can do this job on your own if you have the tools an patience...I did it to my 2004 A4 avant last winter - was a fun project - but I am crazy OCD about my cars. It took a lot to let the shop due the S8...deciding factor was the real possibility of droping something heavy on my body when replacing the subframes- as I dont have a lift

Good luck!!!

email me after NYE and I can provide you with the parts list if you want
