156 suspension noise issues


I have an X Reg Alfa 156

I'm getting a rather annoying noise when I turn hard right (basically a full lock around the round about) and I also am generally getting a knocking sound from the front left of the car.

I've replaced both upper front wishbones and the problem hasn't been solved.

I've just ordered the lower wishbones and Front Drop Links Stabiliser Sway Anti-Roll Bars.

I'm just wondering if anyone can give me advice on whether this may likely solve the problem?

Is there any other obvious part of the suspension I should consider replacing in the front of the car?

On a separate note, is there anything I should consider replacing for a 'smoother ride' from the rear? It is a 13 year old car after all.

Many thanks,

The anti roll bar bushes themselves are quite common.

If the noise when turning hard i.e. fulllock is a ticking noise I would suspect CV joint failure.
