    Broken spring maybe ? If coils snapped I would assume it could make noises even on smooth roads if the two bits keep twanging against eachother..

    Sounds like it could be a spring as that would cause the kind of sound your describing. How is the ride height side to side?

    No springs are fine they are apex anyway so not standard due to standard ones snapping! Its more of a deeper noise than a spring more of a thud

    would agree with above

    also check wheel nuts....a friend had this very sporadic problem and it turned out to be a ever so slightly loose nut

    wrap a piece of insulation tape around the post that the boot latch clicks round to rule that out.
