156 Front suspension illness
Hello all, my mother owns a V6 156, and in the past few months it has been developing ever increasing amounts of front suspension noise. In the mornings or when the car has been standing for quite a while, the sound is barely noticable, but if driven a few K's, especially in the heat, very disturbing (Very loud, and continuous rubbery creaking) sounds come from the front if the car goes over even the slightest bit of a bump or when turning.
Now, we have already replaced the upper and lower wishbones together with the shocks, and the only thing I can think of as a possible problem is the anti-rollbar setup and/or the rack-and-pinion.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
