    Default Constant Velocity Joint problem?

    Hi, I currently have a droning style noise whilst driving as well as clunking whenever i put my foot on or take it off the accelerator, I've tried turning on full lock left and right but cannot hear any clicking. There is sometimes a dull thud or twang which I thought might the spring. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Cant say much about the droning noise but the clunking coming off the accelerator could be a worn engine mount, or even worn bush on a bottom arm

    that twang you mention, was the same as i had on my vectra, turned out to be snapped springs, i would check wheel bearings if you hear a drone when driving. As long as the boot around the cv joint is in tact, i wouldnt think it was the cv
