Creaking Front Suspension - MOT Fail?
My year 2000 156 1.8TS makes lots of sqeaking/groaning noises from the front suspension; particularly it seems, first thing in the morning. I've heard lots of times that 'they all do that' so haven't been too worried about it, but is this likely to constitute an MOT failure?
The car feels very taught round corners and there's no knocking noises - it just sounds like some ball joints are very dry. I've pulled on both from wheels and there's no noticeable play in either.
I'm asking this now because I've not had the car long and absolutely love it, but it does need some bits done to it, and I don't want to go paying out too much tarting it up if it's going to need uneconomic suspension work when it's MOT comes round in December.
Any help appreciated
