    Default Drop Link Advice

    Hi All,

    Long time reader, 0 time posting as all your advice is always spot on! I've got a 1.9 150 Facelift Siggy with a possible drop link problem I was hoping I could get some advice on.....

    About six weeks ago the car went through its MOT at the stealers without a problem but was advised to replace the front drop links (used to work there so get decent price). Had the drop links done and as of three days ago it started making a weird knocking noise, not always on bumps but sometimes around corners and when the car 'leans'.

    I had a quick look at it Sunday and noticed when I press down on the nearside front I can see there is movement and a 'clunk' where the drop link meets the ARB. Do you reckon this is where the noise is coming from and is it the new drop link thats gone or can you get the part the fixes the drop link to the ARB??

    As the stealers replaced the drop links I got it booked in with them tomorrow morning to check.....

    Any ideas much appreciated,

    Cheers
