    Default Still got a squeak/creak after......

    Well after having the car in the garage I had inner/outer track rod arms done also front and rear powerflex arb bushes fitted and also new rear drop links, had it hunter aligned and the car drives like it did when I first had it, however I still have more of a creak if I'm honest but not as often now but its there I also noticed when moving at a slow speed like in a car park when I turn to the right I heard like a mettalic knock, like I said it does not happen has often now I had stuff replaced but I still have it, what do you guys think could this pot hole have knackered my top strut bearing, what are your thoughts has I need it to stop now

    sounds like the top bearing mate , its not turning freely and turning the spring slightly causing the knock .

    Think I will get someone to drop the suspension and inspect bearing the garage also said one of my exhaust clamps had broken off and could possibly cause the creak

    Whilst it was garage bud having all that done I woulda have had the top mounts and bearings replaced and checked for damage to the springs and shocks and also the wish bone arms to be sure
