    Default Horrible sound when steering HELP!

    Hi,

    Only had the Vec for 2 months now but it's started making a crunching/knocky sound when I'm steering. Initially it was only when steering to the right but now it doesn't matter which way I'm going.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Oh, it's an 06 sri just incase that makes any difference.

    Ive just had car services at vx, had a print out sheet from them saying that I have a broken o/s/f broken spring. I have had no knocking or funny noises at all.
    They also said my front pipe is quite deteriorated hehe and quotes £727 for spring/front pipe and 2 tyres.

    Yeh, I'd say it is a kind of click sound but louder. A clunk maybe! haha!

    What would I be looking at money wise if it were the CV joint?

    Not too bad. The car might still be under warranty but they're gonna get back to me on Tuesday to confirm.

    I'll let you know how I get on.
