  • Front end knock!

    Mine does exactly the same and vauxhall changed the same components on mine too. I still get a knock too.



    I reckon it's the actual anti roll bar bushes as these can knock even if they look ok.



    Going to get mine done next month hopefully

            Digging up an old thread but I've found out what the problem is... On my car at least anyway.



            The brake pads had no copper grease on the back of them and it gave them a very slight bit of play. I took them out, put on plenty of copper grease, refitted and the noise has completely gone. Easy and cheap fix!

              spring is ok . strut top bearings are gonna be a lot cheaper than a cv joint i would imagine .
              51 quid a side from europarts for strut mount bearings,,,recommended to change the pair
