Has anyone heard a twang noise from the suspension when "nipping" round a sharp bend in road or with a nearly full car. My car is a 2.0 156jts just over 12 months old. Noise is usualy on the up-stroke, sounds like tapping spring with small hammer.
:(

Yes this seems to be an Alfa feature:

Your lucky....mine gets hit with a large Hammer.. ;)
I wonder if this is a recent feature?, my W reg (Year 2000) Car didn't have this little jolly :confused:

Perhaps it on the way to being a hammer blow? I get this if I plough into a corner with heavy breaking....so I don't do it anymore :rant:

A ker-tung would be easier on the ears than a huge BANG :eek:

my front left suspension has started to squeak (at least i think that's where it's coming from) only over sharp bumps.

I am in the same boat as Grif and Ian. A 98 R TS, has just started about a week ago and seems to be getting worse, now driving around with the stereo off so i can hear it (is that just me or all alfa owners, ha ha). When i rock it from outside i cant hear it, wonder if it is something to do with the bushes around the driveshaft area.

rejoyce laddies, when you hear the twang noise you're still driving, that's more than other brands with twang noises can say... :D
