    Is it a definite bang or could it be a hefty twang (technical term lol)?

    It could be a broken coil spring, but if it just passed an MOT then possibly not.

    It could be it just needs bushes fitted to the springs allowing the springs to move slightly as this is a design fault.

    I'm no expert but I believe there is more information on here about it.
