Hi folks i have recently replaced near side front spring after it had snapped then there was a knocking noise, so i changed the drop link hoping this would cure it as there was a tiny bit of play in it but it is still doing it.

it is a strange one as it doesnt do it all the time and tends to do it mainly over small bumps which are frequent then sometimes it will send a vibration through the car as if it is rattling against a body panel or the bulk head. i have had a look and cant physically see anything and i thought it might have been the wheel arch liner as there is a clip missing but i have replaced it now and the fault still persists, so if any one could shed some light for me it would be greatly appreciated as i hate annoying noises

i feel like hitting my :brickwall:
check if the strut is seated at the bottom properly.otherwise the top of the spring hits the inner will see where it rubbs the underseal off if this is the case.

Might sound a bit thick here but how do you mean seated properly.
If the spring is in the cups correct i think Lorraine means

Worth checking the track rod end and balljoint too IMO. Jack the car up and see if theres any play in the wheel Smile

Thanks everyone for all your opinions, i have checked roll bars and track rod ends etc and all seem to be fine, i will check the lug on the bottom of the strut tomorrow as lorraine said, will be back to let you all know as it is starting to annoy me now.
My knock was a track rod end, wasn't picked up on mot either!
