    Default Hiss from the front over speed bumps

    Hello all

    Noticed today that I get quite a loud Hiss noise (Like air escaping) from the front passenger side when im going over speed bumps at around 10 mph.

    I would have thought shocks maybe. The ride seems even and when I push down on both front sides I can't find a difference.

    Could it be anything more serious or just a shock on its way out?

    Sounds like a shock on the way out. Best change both.

    First though, have a quick look round each side (with wheel off), making sure the springs are not cracked
