    Default Query! Clinking noise from front

    Hi all,

    I'm getting this clinking noise in the front suspension when I going over bumps... However, not all the time....


    Checked the shock absorber, but it seems to be fine.

    Can it be the anti-rollbar?

    i've got the same problem, but only on cold mornings.

    could either be the anti-roll bar bushes as you mentioned or you may find that you need to the 'spring seat mod', do a search on the forum and you'll find part numbers. essentially it's just a piece of plastic that slips over the top coil of the spring in order to prevent it slipping when going over bumps.

    radiator mounts are also a likely culprit.

    Me and Big Phil have had the same problem and the spring mod thing has been done and it was the anti roll bar bushes that stopped the creaking when its cold or going over speed bumps.

    I am also getting the same noise when going over speed bumps, I also notice a similar noise sometimes when I drive along, almost like something expanding or creaking, could this be a result of the same issue already mentioned in this thread.

    yep, it could be....

    if you haven't had the spring mod done yet by holden, then get it done....and the antiroll bar bushes are prime candidates in your case..

    Thanks GSI, does this problem fall into the annoying noise category, or is my suspension is danger of giving way under me when I hit the wrong pothole (australian roads are pretty crappy).

    it's more 'annoying' than dangerous..but poor roads do show up the wear in the links very easily..
