    Default Crunching

    I've seen a couple threads on this but would like some comments.

    Whenever i go over a hump something crunches on the front end. It usual goes after the car is warmed up.

    I seen that this could be either the bushes or the rad mounts. Is it more likely to be one than the other?

    Car is a 2.0 DTI 52 plate

    Also the rear suspension knocks - are there drop links on the rear as well??

    Cheers

    Ben

    Yes, there are drop links on the rear as well, stubby ones.

    As for the crunching noise at the front, could be either of the possbilities you've mentioned, but if you fit the ARB bushes yourself, it'll only cost you about £5-8 to buy them, so it's worth starting with those to see if that gets rid of the noise.

    They're a right ball ache to fit though, it's a pretty straight forward job just tight for space!
