    Default kNOCKING ON DRIVERS SIDE??

    Just trying to gauge a little knowledge,

    Have a 58plate 1.8vvt sri vectra

    Everytime i go over a speed bump or a bump in the road i get a creaking type noise from the drivers side front wheel area,sounds towards the bottom though?

    On normal road/everyday driving nothing knocks/creaks its fine, its just bumps where the shocker has to travel so to speak i get this creak/knock sound

    On a fairly new car seems odd to me or would there be a common issue surrounding this area of the car

    Its booked into my local vauxhall on friday and asked to leave for a couple of hrs so would they allready have a good idea maybe?

    If it is the ARB bushes you would of thought they'd last longer than 1yr

    Yeah, definately! Might not be this, I dunno, could well be though! Mine's a 52 plate, but I don't know if they've been replaced beforehand like.

    my money is on the drop links. just had mine done as they were knocking over speed bumps. replacing both has totally transformed the front suspension!
