    Default knocking again

    got a knocking crunching noise again from the front of my car, not all the time just now and again when going over speed humps, i replaced arb bushes this time last year (how long do they last) were i live 90% of my driving is speed humps, ive also noticed for some time that when going over speed humps he steering wheel dont seem like its solid sort of lose,,

    also if you move the steering wheel (right lock to left lock) you can hear a noise like if your on a hill and you just apply the brakes but your still moving that sort of sound, (if you know what i mean) lol


    wat could it be?

    springs?
    shocks?
    ARB (again)?
    droplinks?

    Getting a crunch when going over speed humps is almost always drop links, I need to do mine as well lol

    If you're steering's loose, you need to check your track rod ends.

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Nope and don't hold your breath for them mate. I e-mailed them to ask if they had any and they told me that they didn't do anything for the Vec but it was something they'd look into in the future

    I'd say if your getting a noise when turning the steering that the upper strut bearings are knackered and as Ian said your other problem is likely to be drop links. Parts for Saabs do an uprated version if thats any help

    The powerflex bushes won't be anywhere near the price of the standard ones (when they arrive), probably between 5 and 10 times the price.
