  • clonking noise since i hit a pothole

    i hit a pothole the other day and since then i sometimes i get a sort of clonking noise when i brake, does anyone have any idea what it could be? i have got eibach sportline springs fitted and im sure that when i was deciding what springs to choose, i saw on here that some people mentioned that they had a knocking noise from theres, so do you think it could be the springs? if so is there a way to sort it?

    Bottom ball joint?

    Get your suspension/joints checked at a garage if you cant check yourself!

        so if it is the ball joint, is it a big job? expensive? it only seems to be sometimes but it is only when i brake.

          Ball joint is an easy job, doesnt sound like thats the problem if you say its only when you brake, perhaps theres a stone or somthing lodged somewhere within the working components of the brakes?

          I hit a rock and blew the tyre out and bent the bottom arm on mine and still no clonk.

          Best get it up on a ramp or a jack and take the wheel off and have a look, if you've bent the bottom arm or damaged the ball joint you'll notice it through the steering it will either be off to one side or more responsive turning one lock than it is on the oppostie lock.
