    Default Vectra-B: Knocking noises & planned bush's change-WHICH ONES DO I NEED?

    Right folks,

    Im planning on changing the bush's on my Vectra within the next couple of weeks, before I got out an buy them, can someone advise me as to what I will most probably need?

    First the car, its a:
    "Vectra-B 2.2 SRI DTI, 2001/51, Hatchback-5-speed Manual".

    Symtoms:
    Kncoking noise on rear, like something is loose. Clunking noise on the front over bump's, again like something is loose.

    My suspiscions:
    Rear Rose Bush's, Rear ARB Bush's, Front Drop Link's, Front ARB Bush's.

    WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?
    ARE THESE USUALLY THE MOST COMMON ONE'S TO FAIL OR DO I NEED SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE ABOVE?


    Please ASAP as im on the verge of ordering them soon!

    Thanks in advance.


    Bye bye Vec B
