GT loose/mechanical knock
Having replaced the droplinks, upper and lowers arms on both sides a few weeks ago there is now a considerable knock/loose mechanical sound.
All was fine having changed the aforementioned parts, there was still a slight knocking sound which could be narrowed down to the ARB bushes...but in total the knocking was greatly reduced.
However a few days later it sounded a bit "thrashy", so I had a look and tightened everything up and it was fine.
Fast-forward to a few days ago when this new sound appeared and I had the tyres off again to look/tighten but everything appears to be normal.
It happens on any road surface/bump and is very audible from inside and outside the car (i.e. window down). It is also definitely at the front and toward the bottom of the car and as I said it just sounds like something is loose and moving about/knocking.
Any ideas guys?
