suspension knocking?

Recommended Posts



So when I'm driving over bumpy roads or over certain types of speed bumps. I get a bit of a clunking noise, it sounds like its a metal on metal noise, coming from the front suspension?


I'm guessing its the front droplinks? As the rear drop links and the front anti roll bar D bushes were picked up on the MOT. So I'm thinking I'm going to replace both sets of drop links and the front d bushes.


Also, do i need genuine subaru drop links? like these




or would these be ok?




Any suggestions?

Go uprated ones mate, the standard ones are rubbish and will need replacing again in the not to distant future. How hard do you want the ride ? Polly bushes are good and a one time replacement but they don't absorb the bumps as well as standard rubber whitline/superpro ones are about fifteen quid for the dbush

The only uprated droplinks i can find are whiteline ones costing about 100 quid each. I cant really afford 100 quid a set mate. Unless you know of any cheaper ones?


I've already bought some standard subaru d bushes as they were pretty cheap. Maybe i shouldnt have :(

Oof ! I picked mine up from savage so got them at a decent price, maybe have a look on the bay,

the silver set from ipc look a bit more robust than the subaru ones, ah well the d bushes should last a couple of years before the wear.

What is your model code ? I'll dig around

Is there anywhere round near you that let's you hire a lift or garage space ? A couple of sockets and a spanner is all you need, save a packet and sense of achievement too [emoji3]


no I'm afraid not mate. will have to find a normal garage. :(
