    Default Clunk when braking.

    Hi,

    I have a vectra 1.9 Sri. Recently I noticed a metallic sounding clunk coming from the front when braking to a stop. I had a health check done on the car the other week and they noted play in the near side drop link. I've had this replaced but still have the clunking. Other than getting the offside one replaced, does anyone have any idea what this might be, it's driving me mad!

    Thanks in advance,

    Stu

    get the suspension set up checked out again,
    does it happen only when braking or does it hapen when changing gears etc?
    could be play in the ball joint or track rod end.

    It mainly happens when I brake quite firmly to stop rather than gently to just slow down. I've not noticed it any other time. Will a mechanic be able to have a look at the things you've suggested, without it costing me a bomb do you know? Thanks for the reply.
