    Default Noise over speed bumps

    53 plate signum v6 cdti

    When i go over a large speed bump i get a grind`ish noise up it and down it.
    Could this be the drop links ??

    Car has had new springs recently

    i think many people have had this problem, myself included since fitting lowered springs. there seem to be many possible causes, such as radiator mounts, drop links, strut top bearing, spring sleeves and anti roll bar bushes.

    i have new drop links to fit & hope that they may help, as i dont fancy dismantling the front struts again to fit new top bearings & spring sleeves.

    start by getting some white grease on the radiator bottom mounts & the ARB bushes.

    If your going to change drop links you might as well do the arb bushes at the same time . they only cost a few quid and your doing half the job allready when changing the links
