    Default Some advice / help

    My car is a 2003 2.0 dti.

    I recently had my front left spring snap on on me, so i went out a bought replacement lowering springs. Which were Apex and lowered it by 35mm. I had no problems at all with the for a few weeks, then there came the problems.

    There was awful knocking / vibration noise coming from the front left side of the car, you could feel it through the steering slightly and badly through the body of the car, but only at the speed of 40 - 60mph and very bad when accelerating up hills and worse when going round left hand turns.

    In the end i took it to my local garage, and he thought to change the springs back over to the standard springs and also replace the drive shaft on the left side, which has been done. ( didn't realise how expensive drive shafts were)
    But now again i have the same problem. Has anyone got any suggestions or had a similar problem. Its getting annoying now.

    There are no damage to the wheels or tires, all have been tracked and balanced. I'll add aswell, that if i floor the car you cant fell any vibration.

    Any help much appreciated.
