GTI front end problem

Yes i know its not a 155
But have recently aquired a
Mk2 Golf Gti as a kind of second
car/project car and the ride
is very rough.
lots of clunking and knocking
from front end, and when steering
at slow speeds a loud snapping
Haven't had much time underneath
it yet,but the bushes don't look
that bad,not sure about the roll bar
maybe strut mounts or steering rack

The clicking noise when turning might be a broken spring or a knackered CV joint

The banging and clunking noise when driving ................well it`s a Golf they all do it

Vorsrung deutch knackered or sumat like that

Tony. The clunking is most likely the strut top mounts. How do I know ???? I'm not telling but it may also sound like the springs are going a kinda "clunnnnnng" when turning.
Actually, it is a big problem on the Mk2 Golfs as nobody changes the strut top mounts.
How do I know ?????? Again I'm not telling........
