    Default Have I got broken springs?

    I've noticed that when I turn into a junction going down hill I hear a kind of pop noise. It kind of sounds like running over a plastic bottle. It's happens when the front left or front right is loaded in the turn. I'm not going fast. Maybe 5-10mph. It doeant do it that often. My tyres are in good condition with even wear. What do you guys think?

    Unfortunatly my jack broke when I last jacked it up. The car fell off the jack and went through the side skirting. Luckily it still held the car off the floor otherwise I'd have been really screwed. The jack is bent and un-useable. I was a little upset about that!

    No it doesn't lean but the noise comes from front left and right. The car looks pretty low but I'm not sure if thats broken springs or just the SRi suspension. Either way the ride is pretty firm!
