      So I have 94K on my S4, and my pad warning came on so I bought new Stoptech Rotors and EBC pads. Since they're gonna be down there, should I do all the control arms too? If so, any good recommendations. I was gonna go with the complete kit from ECS.

      I wouldn't replace them unless they need it. Or unless money isn't an issue and just wanna get it all done..

      I agree with ^

      If/when you are going to buy, I would go with FCPGroton.com They have nice kits, for half the price.

      Well I do notice the creaking in the front end when I first start to drive, so I'm thinking they're starting to go. How long would they realistically last before I would have to replace them?
