    drop link's long skinny bar runs from anti roll bar to suspension leg vertically the ball joints go you have to jack up to feel movement, (sounds like the wheel will fall off) or find some one that knows what it sounds like and get them to listen they are not very expensive and easy to change

    Sounds more like anti roll bar bushes to me as apposed to drop links, they are a couple of quid each from the stealers. As you have to take the drop links off to get to them - i'd say you might as well change them at the same time, I got some recently from ebay at about £10 each delivered. there is a How2 on here for replacing both. HTH.

    I have read on here before that a little smear of grease near the bushes will allow the grease to get in there and quieten them down a bit...
