    Default Suspension 'Clunks'

    I've started hearing a bit of clunking which seems to be coming from the suspension.. If I take this in under warranty will I get a courtesy car while it's being looked at? I did with my previous car, but knowing how tight VX seem to be.....

    is it only when going over speed bumps?

    if so, then it's a common problem with a few culprits.

    Clunks or twangs? Mine twangs a bit over speed bumps, normally it's the spring seat that needs a mod.

    Vauxhall know all about it, basically a plastic sleeve that fits in the cup over the spring.

    could be the anti-roll bar bushes aswell, but more likely the spring sleeves

    It started with speed bumps, but had it happen today when turning, which makes me think it's the springs..

    Ive got the same, warranty ran out last month.

    Is there something i can do myself to this sleeve thingy to see if its faulty ?

    Guys at work recon its the suspention bushes as they have had several go on the company cars, but ive had it checked out a VX and 2 other garages and they found no faults.

    You can hear it when you go over bumps in the road, hard turning like at junctions and speed bumps

    if you search the forum for spring sleeves you should come up with the part numbers that are required.
