    Default Knock/Clunk when taking up drive Rev/Fwd + Squeak from Front N/s ??

    Just Noticed tonight (The Noises are growing) whilst reversing up the drive when you first take up drive & it starts to move backwards a Clunk. Donk noise, If you then dip the clutch & roll forward it does it again. So Sat there rocking back & forth & it sounds to becoming from the rear but can also be felt slightly through the Floor , Sticking Caliper, Tie rods ?? Any ideas ??

    Next one

    Whilst travelling over speed humps, From the front nearside under spring/shocker compression, There is a sort of strangled Squark noise !! ??

    Could this be the spring rubbing on the Shocker cup & requiring the Rubber Sleeve spring Mod, Anti roll bar bushes ?? Or something else ?, I plan to take a peek at both tomorrow to see if i can identify whats causing them, It's too Blinkin dark to see anything now..

    Thanks

    This is where you could do with your own car lift How much easier would it be than lying on your back on damp/cold Tarmac !!!

    Well, After investigation today, The rear top control arms have quite a bit of Nodd/Play in them & the N/S Rear caliper is binding slightly.. So a bit of work to do there.

    Anybody have a rough price on the top control arms ??

    As for the front Noise, I could not find anything, So lubbed up the Anti roll bar bushes with some silicone spary to see if it makes a difference to the noise to help to pin point it !!!

    Cheers
