    Default Funny Suspension Noise

    Hi,

    I've just this minute bumped off a kerb. Nothing to high, 4/5 inches at most - I went very slowly, and as my second front wheel fell of the kerb (at the point when the car was at a funny angle), I heard this loud 'b-doing' type noise (like a spring depressing noise).

    What could it be? Could I of over done it? I was hardly moving!

    Its a 2006 Sri with 16000miles on. Surely I shouldn't be experiencing problems yet?!?

    sounds like you need the spring seat mod......take it into the dealers and get them to fit it under warranty..

    Thanks Mark.

    I've just heard the noise again, so i've just booked it in to PLP Widnes. I've also asked them to look at my 'leaky' gearbox, as per this thread (http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread...t=gearbox+leak)


    Any predictions of what they'll find??

    Thanks
