    Default top mounts and shocks

    Had a spring replaced as part of the MOT and now ive got a horrendous clunk when going over bumps.
    Ive changed the anti roll bar links and still the clunk. From reading through the forum it appears to be the top bearing.

    Ive decided to replace the lot, shocks, bearings and mount on both sides.

    Can anyone recommend where to buy this lot from, also a decent set of spring compressors that wont break the bank, moneys tight due to Christmas.

    Cars an 05 diesel estate
    thanks

    Ive had a look as best i can, the spring looks like its sitting ok. I've just noticed tonight that i creaks when i turn the steering wheel when stationary. Before the spring was replaced there was a knocking but not as bad as it is now.
    I think i'm going to strip it down, replace the bearings and top mount and see it that makes a difference.

    Any recommendations on where to buy the parts from
