    Default Knocking/Clunking noise from front suspension

    Hi Chaps

    I wonder if anyone could give me any pointers to look out for?

    I have a knocking/clunking noise coming from the OSF suspension area which started last night and is only intermittent. At first i thought it might have been a snapped spring, but on inspection, it's fine and no drop in ride height. Droplinks are fine, and so are all the balljoints after checking for movement. I am going to replace the ARB bushes in the next few weeks as they give a bit of a squeek, but not in a condition to cause excessive movement.

    It only happens sometimes over rough surfaces, or when the car squats down driving over little bumps. It sounds like someone's tapping the bodywork with a hammer, is the best way to describe the noise. But it has me baffled

    Any help would be appreciated

    When you say "droplinks are fine", there's usually nothing visual to indicate they're worn, even when they are.

    They have no movement in them when i checked them (didn't feel loose, and no play)

    Going to replace them anyway since i'll be on with the ARB bushes soon
