    Default Drop Links newbie help?

    Hi new to the forum

    just picked up my 2.2DTi Signum last week and noticed a knocking noise from the front and squeaks a little when going over speed ramps

    when I turn in to corners any speed any angle (knocking noise) but not when parked on on the spot, and occasionally on uneven roads

    After searching through various thread on this forum

    I came across drop links seem to be weak and can cause this problem??

    Any help would be great, do you think it could be bushes too??

    Cars on 120k

    thanks in advanced

    I take it its not worth changing the drop links on their own

    might as well do both?

    Do both the drop links & ARB bushes at the same time - allows ARB to be completely free so will be easier to fit new ARB bushes.
    Using a 10mm rachet spanner makes job of undoing ARB bush bracket bolts much easier as not much access.
    Drop links are very easy to fit.

    As above, replace your drop links and ARB bushes. They're both really cheap and easy to do.

    The how2 for the drop links is here:

    May I add though you may need a 16 or 17mmm spanner in a addition to what the How2 says. (I needed a 16mm)
