    are your wheel bolts tight??..

    if you've got a warranty then yes, it should be covered if it's not something silly like the above..

    I sometimes get a sort of 'twang' noise from the o/s/f. Thought it could be the spring seating but it's got the mod done so don't know.

    lower balljoint or trackrod end is a firm favorite now then...both jobs you can do if you're handy with the spanners, but otherwise it's still got to go into a garage for initial diagnosis..

    or if you're good with cars we can tell you how to check out various parts..

    does it bang on one side only, or on both sides??..
