Tom,
The 750 bushings should have lasted MUCH more than 30k! I have read and heard reports of the Urethane Bushings transmitting more vibration/nois onto the chassis.

BTW - Were they installed correctly, with the final torquing of the bolts done with the car off axle stands, wheels on the ground/ramp and a load in the front seats?

Oh, and trust me on this one, dealers don't always do it right...my wifes Audi A4q new TA arms and bushings were incorrectly installed and torqued down by my dealer. I argued with them about this and they basically didn't care and blew me off. I then rechecked my information, found that I was STILL right so I called around I found that only 1 of the 3 local Audi dealers knew that they had to load the suspension to finish off the job....I now go to them!
