    Have you tried jacking front of car up and turning when no weight on front? If it donít make the noise then I would go with bushes in track control arm and possibly antiroll bar bushes

    While he was sorting it out I got him to check out the noise and itís my ball joint because the rubber has split

    Got a flat on the way home from work and went round a corner, shredded the wheel so then had to walk an hour home

    Long story short it was the ball joint, thatís being replaced next weekend but the noise has now stopped which is slightly worrying but the whole wheel arch areas need a refresh
