    Unhappy Vectra c clucking from drivers side wheel (cracking metal sound)??

    Hi,
    I have a strange problem with my vectra c 04 plate of which i have tried everything to fix and nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far (driving me nuts now).
    Its hard to describe but it sounds like a metal bolt snapping when hitting a pot hole, over speed ramps some times, turning corners. brakeing or setting off fast.

    Below is what i have done so far: -

    Bottom arms / Wishbones (both sides) = REPLACED NEW (aftermarket)
    track rod ends (both sides) = REPLACED NEW (aftermarket)
    link arms (both sides) = REPLACED NEW (aftermarket)
    Brake Pads mintex (both sides) = REPLACED NEW (aftermarket)
    Anti roll bar bushes (both sides) = REPLACED NEW (aftermarket)
    Drive Shafts = REPLACED USED (off a scrap car)
    Springs / shockers checked in good condition new rubber seat added to springs (both sides) NEW (from dealers)

    Any ideas this has cost me a small furtunes so far and i still have the same problem??

    Regards,
    Smith Online
