    Default Clunky all round

    Okay, so far I've doen the front drop links, rear dampers and rear ARB bushes.... I've still got the upper rear arms, front ARB bushes and front struts to do but I don't know if that'll cure my clunky suspension.

    Was in the mother in laws astra today and you couldn't feel a thing everytime you hit a pot hole or dip in the road...you could only just tell. It felt amazing....

    However, my signum clunks and judders over the very smallest of bumps in the road...it's awfull And every speed bump I go over I get the horrible crunching from both front and back axle (I thought doing the rear bushes would have at least cured this noise from the back, but no )

    Do you guys think that there could be something else wrong that if fixed, would cure this?

    When I changed the rear shocks for B4s I have to say I've felt absolutely no difference in the handling or ride quality whatsover...

    I'm getting really disheartened that when I've done the rest of the work, the car will still drive like a cow in shed.....

    Advice please!!

    Any of these remaining noises sound like someone hitting the chassis with a small hammer? (twanging noise).

    One of them - yes! It's very intermittent though and sometimes does it when turning slowly or just after braking. Sometimes it doesn't do it for days then 5 times during a 10 mile trip.

    Why? Do you have an idea what this might be?
