2007 gt

When car hits a bump or small hole i am getting a sound as if shocks are worn it sounds like its front, near or offside unknown. When driving in wet conditions it gradually disapears making me think its a DRY component? i have taken car to a garage who is a friend he has lubricated various parts but still not found problem, he does not think its the shock obsorbers.
The only way i can describe the noise is its like old leaf springs when they are rusted up and groan when compressed, it is not a knocking sound more like two parts rubbing.

From Sears in http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...em-noise.html:

Re: Suspension problem noise
from my experience:

Squeeks = upper wishbones

Knocking = ball joints of upper or lower wixhbones or drop links

Thumping sound down at your feet when travelling over rough ground = ARB bushes.

these bushes can be successfully replaced & i sell 'poly' bushes for 22mm ARBs, see the link in my signature for more info.

PM me if you interested
