2000 Audi TT Quattro 130,000 mi,
front cracking noise when turning right

There is an ungodly creaking that comes from the sway bar. It was terrible to drive with.
Chipped off the cracked plastic under front & back sway bar bushings, sanded and silicone-greased the rusty sway bar areas, replaced with new bushings. 21mm here, but bar varies with model.
I purchased this Audi TT in Vicenza Italy (Army) a couple of months ago with 54,000KM. It is making deep creeking noises. When I took it to a local shop they told me the motor mounts needed replacing. How can I tell if they are correct or if it is the sway bar?

Creaking in the front end, like the sound of a tin can being crushed. First they replaced the sway bar linkages then the whole sway bar and the bushings. I am not impressed with the quality of the car overall and will likely buy another Mercedes instead next time I am in the market for a toy.
