Play in front wheel problem's
Hi guys i have had an ongoing problem with my 1999 156 2.0ts, the front left suspension has become really bangy and groany over bumps and speed humps, so much so that i replaced the front drop link for a new one from. (worst mistake i ever made) This worked ok for a couple of days then the problems resumed, i have been driving the car knowing that the drop link will again need replacing for a propper Alfa one very soon.
My Question to you is can the front drop link cause movement in the road wheel the same as a worn wheel bearing or is there a chance that the dodgy drop link has caused the wheel bearing to fail due to the extra stress on it? There is alot of movement of the road wheel when i jacked the car up for a look.
