    Default Knocking Sounds From Front???

    Hi, I've had my Vectra a while now, no real problems, but recently (past 3/4 months) I hear loud knocking sounds when going over slight bumps on the road. It is so loud that it sounds like I have drove into a huge pothole. I have had bushings, rear arms and bearings changed (sorry not a car expert), and that seems to have stopped the knocking from the back. I recently got a new spring fitted on front passenger side, seemed to work fine for a week or so, enjoyed driving it again then back comes the knocking!!! It is really starting to annoy me now!!!

    Get the real Mccoy from vauxhalls they are much better quality.
    They are around £35 for the pair.
