  • Annoying dull muted knock from front

    It's seems it's coming from the N/S. From searching on here it would seem that the drop links are the culprit, but I've looked and given them a shake and tried to replicate but they seem ok. No play from what I can see. I will get a bar on 'em at weekend, but failing that, are there any other components that are common to cause this knock over crap road surfaces?

      possibly anti roll bar mount bushes the "D" shaped ones.i had a knock on mine so did the drop links,noise was still there,changed the mount bushes and it's been silent since.i advise if you do change them to upgrade to poly ones,fit and forget about them.

          Hey Rock, they are accessible from the wheel arches but you will need a torx ratchet spanner (E10 or E12) preferably flexi head but a 10mm flexi can be used 'gently' a bit of patience and a swear jar and they can be done easily enough. Take care not to drop your screws down any holes put there I'm convinced by manufacturers to try and break us lol

            Thanks to all for help and advice on access. If I do one side at a time, would I need an extra jack to put a load on that side of the roll bar, or can the bushes and brackets be replaced easily enough hanging there?

              I did mine just one side at a time with one trolley jack ,backs are easy the fronts are tight for space I ripped my knuckles to bits,would be far easier if you can get access to a ramp.
