    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP Saphirre Black

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default Can top mount bearing or arb bushes rattle?

    Hi guys, well its doing my head in now, starting to ruin my enjoyment of a great car! I drove my old sri cdti today, which is also on 19s and eibachs, it's almost silent over bumps.

    I'm getting a muffled rattle, almost like the noise you'd get if bumper was loose, but its not! It's coming from upper suspension turret area...

    I'm thinking, could top mount bearing go rattly and noisey? Also I've done drop links, made no difference, while doing them I disconnected both and gave arb a good shake, it was solid so didn't do arbs... But thinking, even if inspected they are fine... Could they still rattle on road?

    What else rattles? Do shock absorbers go noisey? I cant think of anything else? Car drives fine, and suspension feels like it's working normally.

    Mines got IDS shocks, I've noticed with sport mode on the noise is slightly less... Perhaps as less suspension travel... Could this be a clue??

    Any ideas massively apprecciated guys...

    Mike

    How do you mean crunch? Metal or plasticy noise?

    I had a noisey strut top bearing on my preface just as mot was due & i was about to trade it in...
    It was a knock rather than a rattle when cornering over uneven ground, took the casing apart & packed the roller bearings with cv grease, saved me replacing it. hth

    Vehicle : 2.2 Direct

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : YH 2.2 petrol

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 85000

    I have a knock from the rear off side, removed parcel shelf, spare wheel and made sure seats are locked into position and still a metallic knock, so had it up on ramps and had a look at my twin exhaust as well as any cables, also checked the arb bushes but all seams tight, readind posts it could be arb bushes so I will replace them but also the top control arm which I will remove, they look like they have the same type of rose bushes as a Vec b trailing arm has which if so I am very use to replacing as did it a couple of times in the past few years.

    Was your suspension any noisier in general while it was at fault? I can't work out if it's a rattle, or loose noise... Defo got noisey suspension at the front at the min....
