    Default loud "thunk" noise from passenger side suspension

    hiya, just a quick bit of info needed please, on my newly aquired sxi vectra when going over a bump/divvet etc on the road (roughly at any speed above 30 mph) i am hearing a really loud thunk noise coning from the passenger side suspension, sounds almost like thesubframeof the car has "hit" the road, can anyone give me a bit of light on what the possibilities may be, im thinking something along the lines of a drop link but i have not had the chance to have a look at what the problem may be

    cheers in advance

    Gordon

    Could be that or anti roll bar bushes or even a broken spring, worth getting under there and having a look mate

    Hi might be worth taking a look at the metal brake line that runs near the spring cup on the strut. Mine had unclipped itself and was clunking when going over even the smallest of bumps.
