    Have you used the search button? If not search for drop links and rad mounts. Most likely suspects imo.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yep like your description, mine only did it occasionally over speed bumps but more often over pot holes. When I investigated the bottom section of the N/S rear spring had broken off completely and just sat in the recess. The N/S is the most common due to more pot holes on that part of the road and people bouncing up and down curbs.

    Let me know how you get on ?

    Just had my rear upper suspension arms changed on mine. Wow what a difference, like yours every imperfection or pot hole speed hump it would make a right bang and crash. felt like i had my tyres at 80 psi or something there was no give in the suspension.

    The easy way to check is to put your arm in between top off wheel and wheel arch, grab hold off the tyre and pull the wheel towards you. and push back again. Mine moved loads and you can hear it clunk as you do it. You do this with the car on the ground and not jacked up.

    Both my sides were knackered. It sounds lovely now and feels softer like its not smashing over the bumps, just glides over.

    Give it a try, bet thats what the prob is.
