    Default Clunking when turning steering?

    Today after pulling into a service station my 2.0 dti veccy (2003) developed a lovely clunking n oise after running over a slightly dipped manhole cover.

    Upon moving the steering back and forth i can heara clunk which i think is coming from the front right wheel area, i can feel it through the spring, however after feeling around blindly it feels as though the spring is intact.

    Any suggestions?

    Touch the spring and get someone to rock the steering if you can feel the klonking through the spring it's probably got a problem with the top mount and bearing assy

    Excellent i have done that and i can feel the spring twanging/jumping slightly.

    Do both sides of the car need doing if so?

    Additionally do i need a top mount AND bearing or just one or the other?
