    I would have thought a banging noise when you go over rough ground. Might even cause uneven tyre wear.

    yes it does sound a bit clunky going over the speed bumps & the garage said it would cause uneven tyre wear. not had a look yet but i was told if i jack the car up and give the wheel a tug outwards it will have some play in it. They said the parts cost about £70-£80 each & labour would be £100
