    Default Big bang

    As I reversed the thing yesterday there was a loud bang from front end and as I drive there is a rattling noise from he near side, as though something is loose. Had a butchers underneath as I thought it may be a spring that had snapped. Felt round, but all seems in tact. As if that's not enough rear o/s brake binding too. Am getting generally fed up with little things that keep happening. Any help/ advise or sympathy would go down well!

    Are you sure it wasn't the rear o/s banging as it released as you reversed?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I dont honestly know, it definately sounded as though it came from the front end, saying that I had just had the back end off the ground checkin the brakes so it could have. Dropped missus off at work this morning and she says rattlin coming from passenger front end. Daren't argue wi her.

    the only way to really check is to raise the car and remove the roadwheel..then , as the spring is fully extended, you can check it's lenght and see if it has cracked a section off..
