    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default Kind of a twang!

    So when I went over a speed bump I got a kind of twang!!! on the drivers side.
    DAM - Spring I thought, but just checked and the spring seems all in one piece.

    So - what could it be - Top mount / bearing I wonder..

    Hmm...

    Sure its not the spring boots? Do you have rubber boots on the bottom of the springs, this was a common problem on earlier models..
