    Default Noise from Front Suspension.....

    After having all 4 shocks and springs changed about 2 weeks ago, all was well and quiet.
    A slight rumbling noise has now appeared from the front suspension area, I've had a look and the spring / shocks appear fine and dandy.

    Its fine on smooth roads, but when on rippled surfaces, there is a rumbling crashing sort of noise - what am I looking at here? Car is having its 1st MOT tomorrow, so will need to know to get them to sort it before the warranty goes west!

    Cheers!

    Tyre noise? Camber adjustment? Bushes, loose mounts? The list goes on...

    Its not tyre noise, they are fine and the camber has been checked and adjusted by MPG when the suspension was done.

    I was thinking perhaps drop links (am i right?) or bushes - although MPG made no mention of any problems when I was there

    Do your springs have the rubber "socks" on the bottom?

    I havent looked to be honest - should they have? It didnt come on straight away after they were fitted.

    I noticed it about 2 or 3 days ago. THought I had a puncture to be honest. Going over speed humps is ok, just a rough road surface that makes the noise !?

    I had a similar problem, well just a knocking/rubbling noise, after I had my lowering springs fitted... basically they hadn't put my rubber socks on the bottom of my springs, they stop them rubbing and banging around when going over rough surfaces (I think) - It was a update from VX.

    The rubber bits are just a few quid from VX. Its just a hassle of getting them on the springs etc... but then, didnt you get the whole setup, not just the springs?? It maybe the kit?

    I got the full set up from LMF and had it installed at MPG. It drives fine, no rolling or anything like that.
    There is no noise over speed bumps or large potholes.

    I do however think that there is a slightly loose feeling to it now when its going over a rippled road surface. Like there is a loose link in the suspension linkage

    Confusing isnt it
