    confused front struts noise?

    hi,

    here we go again, (creeking from front).

    i have recently fitted new drop links and the spring seat mod but i am still getting the above. i have got new anti roll bar bushes but not fitted them yet as i dont think this is the problem.just picked the missis up from work and when we got home i asked her to turn the steering wheel both ways while i had my head under the bonnet.(thought she was gonna blow the horn as she is the sort of woman to do that )the sound is coming from the struts(full set of koni's fitted),could it be the rubber tops on the struts that need changing or greasing.

    (note, it dosen't do it in wet conditions.)

    wot do you reckon?

    one for gsi3.2 if your on here.

    thanks

    kev.

    Yea could well be dry top mounts, just drop them out and give them a smearing of grease.

    How do you "drop" these out?
    As I have just noticed a similar noise when on full lock. Cheers

    the top mount is held in buy 3 torx screws at the top of the strut, you need to remove the whole strut. in the end this wasn't my problem it was the spring mod again that must have worked its way from the the coil spring. not only that i been getting worse problems with knocking etc and this resulted in me taking my koni suspension off and sending it back as i think they are faulty.fitted my original set up and all the noises have gone.got myself some bilstiens now and eibach 30mm springs anyway. fitting them at weekend.

    Cheers kev - it only seems to do it on full lock to the left ie the noise can be heard shortly when returning steering to centre.....
