    Question Suspension noises!! Newbie needs some help!!

    Hi gang! Had my Sri Dti 53 plate for a few months. It has developed what I would say as 'graunching' 'light crunching' sounds when the car is in motion even at low speeds. Broken spring perhaps? Car handles and drives well enough......just this grinding graunching sound!! Makes the Vec sound like a bag of nails inside the car!!

    Any advice would be appreciated thanks !!

    Hi Adam .
    this is probably going to be a process of elimination
    Probably causes for the noises youve described warn top mount,s on the suspension , broken springs , warn ARB bushes , warn drop links , failing that warn radiator mounts .
    Of the above your despriction of the graunching noises makes me lean towards the top mounts fairly common for these to go on vecs .
    check your springs have not had the ends broken off again common .
    Any clunking noises you can usually put down to drop links/arb bushes being worn

    is it a knocking or crunching if its a knocking mosr probably a drop link somewhere if its crunching my bet is the anti roll bar bushes

    spray some silicone spray onto the bushes and test drive it, if its quiet then change the bushes

    dont spray everything though as you wont know what item it is

    as bobssignum said Probably causes for the noises youve described warn top mount,s on the suspension , broken springs , warn ARB bushes , warn drop links , failing that warn radiator mounts

    normally it happens when you go over speed humps its the drop links and arb bushes

    i would go with the radiator mounts or engine mounts

    if it does it going over speed bumps most of time its droplinks and arb bushes
