n/s rattle

there seems to be a rather loud rattle coming from the n/s front wheel when the road is a bit bumpy also the vdc light came on the other day when it was rattling. we had something changed on the suspension last year that looked like a y shape that was bent, "dunno". i know **** all about cars as you may notice but this dont sound right at all.

Re: n/s rattle

y shaped was either upper or lower wishbone.

the rattle could be ther other wishbone that wasnt replaced or a drop link or anti roll bar bushes.

Re: n/s rattle

Come on over and I'll check it out for you, it does sound like an upper wishbone ball joint has let go, I think your better off replacing all 4 wishbones and both front droplinks at the same time to nail it and keep the costdown, PM me for pricing.
