    Default front suspension knock

    Hi guys my 56plate 1.8vvt sri navi has developed a knock in the front drivers side. I hear it when goin over speed bumps or any bits of cr@ppy road. Since iv got speed bumps in my street iv noticed I hear the knock when driving of the speed bump if you know what I mean??

    Just wondering if any1 has any idea what it could be? also how much a repair would cost as cash flow is extremely low at the minute

    Have something similar to my 07 CDTi - almost a mechanical 'ding cum clunck'! Checked with Vauxhall dealer mechanic as I thought it was the 'broken spring' syndrome but he tells me the front springs have a tendency to rotate and the noise is this small shift. Don't know if this is true but sounds plausible. Can be fixed if wanted by adding a shim but not necessary.

    thanks for the info guys. suspension problems effectively ended my last motor so hearing a knock was the last thing i wanted.

    a little warning 4 all if buyin an old focus for a run around. trailing arm bushes in the rear and other bushes in the front, design flaws in the focus mean its hard not 2 crack the suspension arm unless the right tooling is used. most garages wudnt even look at my car apart from the stealers who quoted £1500
