    Default Loud clunk/clang as i steered right

    As above, just stopped as realised me wallet in me other coat at home, did a 3 point turn and felt like summat hit the car hard i stopped inspected. Dont see anything...

    I steered again and went louder!

    Realised summat's wrong, carefully drove home, car pulling to the right!

    Anyone have any idea or happened to you?

    Inspected without jacking car up dont see anything wrong so must be something!!

    Am gutted cos me first day to do welding course! Its 30 minutes away drive. Knew when the clang and car pulling right meant best to not drive it as i dont know what went wrong! Cant risk my life "hoping" the car is ok by driving on!

    I had something similar with mine, it turned out the suspension top nut had worked loose, this was allowing the spring to turn with the steering.

    Might be worth checking they are both tight.
