    Default strange noise

    hi chaps

    am getting a creaking noise for the front of my vectra c 2002 67000miles. it make the creaking noise comes when am breaking or when parking on the side of the road am sure its related to my car driving wobbly and being bouncy I have been to several garages but they all said that my shocks are fine and springs are too but I have had a powerstreeing leak near or on the steering rack. when am driving it the drivers side of the car feels fine but the passengers side feels woobly I think!!! it could both sides and when I come to break at speed of 30mhp it swerves I change the track rod ends but still no luck. any suggestions will be appreciated.

    thank you

    ozzy.

    Have your springs checked, one could have snapped or just be dislodged ! im getting mine checked next Friday for the spring seat mod, mine creaks on the LH turn, and at times feels a little twitchy !

    Sorry for the delayed reply, im not sure myself as to what it actually is, or what it looks like should it already have been done ! i have put a post up in the suspension & steering section asking just that ! i think it might be a nylon cup that is fitted in the top of the spring seat, which stops the spring from twisting around and coming out of position, ( maybe )

    thought i said this elsewhere but i'll say here too... the spring mod is a little rubber sleeve that sits on the bottom end of the spring where it sits in the pan. I believe it stops it twitching when under load and creating that twang noise. the sleeve should be a green colour.

    You can tell if you've had them done by jacking the car up a way and then feeling the bottom of the spring for the rubber bit, you should also be able to see it too if its not too dirty.
