    confused Suspension Rubbing

    Hello, I have an annoying rubbing noise coming from the from the fromt end of my veccy when going over speed humps or sharp lumps/potholes in the road.

    04 1.9 cdti (120) club, no mods to suspension (yet....)

    I have no under engine guard (the plastic thing) and all wheel arch liners seem to be fixed well. The noise is coming from the front end of the car.

    Seems to happen most on compression of the suspension and can occur at speeds as low as 10 mph.

    No strange characteristics from the car when driving, no rubbing of the wheels on full lock.

    Any thoughts or questions appreciated.

    My concerns are nroken springs or engine mounts...

    Cheers guys, is it worth paying for uprated bushes, she's done 96k on these ones.

    Also my car is a club, if I fit SRI springs and shocks, will these fit straight on & would they lower the car a little?

    Upgraded anti roll bar bushes are they worth it?

    Also ifI fit SRI shocks and springs to my Club will they lower the car from standard anyway?

    Thanks....

    Agreed, I had that same noise for ages
    On first visit to dealership, nothing found
    However next MoT advised front droplinks with play
    Went back to dealership, "oh yeah, they do have a bit of play in them"
    Had them replaced under warranty, and that solved the noise
