    Default Top strut bearings, maybe?

    Hey guys, been a while since I've been active but I need some advice!

    My front end is making a god awful noise when turning, even at decent speeds, 20-30mph (roundabouts) it used to be rare to hear it and now its pretty much all the time. I have a hunch that its the strut bearings, am I right? How much would a garage take to fix this? I've no time nowadays to do anything!


    Cheers guys

    Think same prob as me. Try this take the cap off the top of the strut and get someone to turn the wheel if you see it snap or jump that's the prob its more like a loud tick tick of metal .. I got quoted 60 to fit both . Small garage I use

    Just been quoted £250 for both? Think I'll be looking somewhere else. Anyone know of any decent cheap garages in Ayrshire?
