    Default Another front knocking issue.

    I lowered the car yesterday. The new springs seem to be bedded fine but there is now an awful knocking noise over every little bump which is gradually getting worse.

    When i undid the drop links I did notice that the rubber seemed to be pretty much knackered. I havent had a problem with them until now. So I've ordered two new ones.

    Is it possible that the drop links were knackered and undoing them has caused them to pretty much fall apart? and would this likely be the cause of said knocking noise?

    Cheers Spenny. I shall give it a go when I get back from Cornwall. The vectra is having a rest in the garage as the missus insisted we took her car. Fuel economy or something like that!

    Changed the drop links. Still a knocking noise. It doesnt appear on every bump, and seems to be coming from the right hand side. Cant for the life of me work out what it is.

    Ive checked everything. Springs seated correctly. New drop links are fine and all bushes are fine. I'm not even sure that it is coming from the suspension. Could just be a coincidence.

    sounds like the anti roll bar bush to me, there about £2.50 from stealers, there are how 2s on fitting, also check torque on wish bones, you may aswell change both arb bushes at same time.
