    Try grabbing a hold of the top of the wheel (when on the ground) and listen for a clunking sound, if you hear that then you need new upper control arms.

    Failing that it may be your arb bushes. They may look ok but they may still be the culprit hth

    I had exactly the same on the upper control arms. I gave both wheels a good old yank on the top and they both knocked. Both replaced this weekend, abit fiddly. The bushes on the hub end were like sponge, really soft. But all is good now..
    Theres an excellent how to on replacing the arms...
