Brera 2.2 JTS

Noise from Front of Car

Over the past couple of days my 2.2 Brera has started making sounds which I can only describe as a sort of twanging or slight knocking sound which comes from somewhere at the front of the car. It seemed worse yesterday when I two other people in the car but it was still there on the odd occasion.

Any idea where to start looking for the cause?

I should point out that the dampers and springs have been replaced recently with Bilstien B4's and Eibachs (about a month or so ago). Prior to me owning the car the n/s upper wishbone was replaced. The lower bushes have also been powerflexed.

Turns out it was the o/s driveshaft that was the problem. Quick diagnosis and replacement by Autolusso and all is well again...
