..there thanks reply..

Ok..well the suspension on these are fairly simple

unlike other audi's so not so sure why your garage cant pin point it and then say its common problem...the areas id be checking would be the ARB links / ARB bushings normally these are first places to check..next would be the lower control arm bushings.sometimes these over time/corrosion can into the metal sleave centre of the bushings where the bolts go through..so when you hit pothole that twisting due to partial seizure causing the creaking..you can often narrow it down by simply spraying wd-40 or other spray lubricant or jam grease into sides of the rubber bushing to get into the metal sleave..then road test the car again..if the noise limits or stops then what ever bushing you sprayed intot would be your problem..you could do them all including the arb links/bushings if the noise stops then least you know what areas you need to investigate and helps narrow it down..id say the most common ive seen on these is the as i suggested above bad arb link/balljoint ends causing that or the arb bar bushings..failing that other checks regarding broken spring on that side or top mount - track rod end balljoint..but like i say above arb/antiroll bars are usully the most common..if the garage your using cant find it then maybe try another garage and see if they can do further checks test like suggested above..i do hope this helps
