    thought it was shokers but took it to the garage and he checked every thing out as if an mot even took it out himself and couldnt work it out
    just wondered if it could be the plastic covers under the car rubbing against each other as i had a new radiator fitted and they havnt put all the little plastic screw things back

    I had the same problem, turned out to be the front ARB bushed, changed them and sorted it. could also be the front valance scraping on the floor when going over them faster than you should.

    there isnt much room but it is easy to do if you get a 10mm fexi rachet spanner . dont try it if you dont have one . they cost £10 ish from halfords or b&q . i would say only take the nut nearest the front of the car off when doing them and loosen the back nuts as it is very tight to get the back nut back . all you need is 2 jacks, 1 19mm socket and a 10mm fexi spanner and thin nose piers. it is easier to take the drop link of the top of the suspension rather than the anti roll bar

    if i was you go for thr cheapest option first and do the arb bushes and if the noise is still there do the drop links . because i went the other way i done my springs then drop links and it was still there.so i done the arb bushes tuesday and the noise went .
