    Default creaking and clunking all round?? i had!!!!!

    Just thought i'd put all the valuable info that helped me to remedy my orchestral manouvres over lumps and bumps. All this info is available on other posts ifyou trawl for hours like I did but i'd like to save people time- like those original posters did for me- but with a turbo added

    I had creaking and clunking from the front and back of my veccy going on and off speed humps and over mini roundabouts .

    The front and rear creaking was the anti roll bar bushes. They are rubber blocks and cost about £12 all in from vauxhall. Fronts are a pig to fit but the rears make up for that.

    The front clunking was the drop links. They were pattern parts and £29 all in. the inbuilt bolted rose wears out.

    The rear clunk was the rear suspension upper arms. to check these you need to squat down facing the wheel, put your hands on the inside top edge and pull it towards you. any movement outwards means they're shot. Again pattern parts- but i got done- paid £90 but now i know you can get them for £50 including delivery from ebay We live and learn.

    I paid £110 to have them all fitted which was a steal from what I've seen on here about stealers charges. but then I had read the how to for fitting each part on the various threads and gave the grease monkey the info and waited while he worked so I knew how long it took . I hope my ten mins putting this together saves you all some time.

    goodluck!!

    Good to hear you got sorted. All common probs but useful to have them all covered in the same post.
