    Default Siggy In For Knocking From Front

    As per title, the Siggy has gone in to the garage today to try and find out what is knocking on the front passenger side. Changed the drop link a couple of weeks ago but it was still there, so hopefully they will be able to locate the problem and fingers crossed it wont be to expensive. Its strange cos there is no play in the wheel if you do the grab test and when I had the car jacked up and wheel off everything seemed pretty tight so its got me stumped. But hey that doesn't take much. Lol

    I was thinking it maybe the ARB's but its not a job i'd like to do myself. Looks to fiddley to me. I am a novice at best when it comes to mechanics and all though it may not be technically that hard to do, I dont have many of my own tools and its getting increasingly hard to do anything at work as my company director is all ways flitting in and out of a weekend so I thought i'd let someone else have a go. Lol.

    I had to change my wishbone on that corner. Was not expensive. Everything else I had already replaced for other reasons.
