    Default fclunking noise coming from front drivers side wheel

    You prob will not see a great deal wrong with them until you get them out, at which point you will see how sloppy they are. You can pretty much guarantee they will be knackered, it's such a common problem especially if you're lowered too. It's an easy fix, front wheels off, bolted top and bottom, jack up hubs to release them. The bushes are a bit more of a work up cos you need to lower the sub frame a little but I've never had to do them.

    You don't need to drop the sub-frame to change the front ARB bushes. They are quite cheap to buy and easy to do if your handy with a spanner. There's a how 2 on the forum. I'll post up a link for you in a mo.
