Another Suspension Noise Q..

Hi all,

Had some funky noises coming from the front of the GT recently. It's on 123K so no surprises really.

The first one comes from the drivers side front, it's like a 'popping' noise over light bumps in the road. I have replaced the upper wishbone and the roll bar drop-link.

The second is a clunk from the same side going over speed bumps.

The third is from the passenger side front, its like a creaking sound audible at low speed.

and the fourth is a clonk when accelerating hard, reversing and turning. I assume this is a CV joint....

Anyone else had similar noises? Should I just replace every wishbone, bush , cv joint on the car?

Yeah all them without the accelerating and turning ones which may well be the ARB

I replaced top & bottom arms and drop links, No more clunks

I've just replaced the strut upper bush mount, bearing and lower spring pad on my GT 3.2. The suspension had been noisy for a little while but gota lot worse recently. The upper mount was split, which was causing lots of noise when going over bumps. Lovely and quiet now......
