Thread: noise in the left front suspension (LHD)

  1. #1
    ... the left wheel of the 3200 makes a noise when I find a pothole and the car circulates at more than 20 km / h

    It could be anything . But probably suspension or anti roll bar bushes worn out . But without a better description its hard to advise .

    Drop links are famous for a rattle over potholes.

    Need to get the wheel off and a pry bar in there and give it a wiggle.

    drop links and lower ball joints are the most likely but also ARB bushes maybe, and the wheel arch liners too depends if its a clunk or a creaking noise, or a scraping noise, need a little more to go on here i suspect :-)

    clunk is most likely drop links or bottom ball joint in the suspension, I guess track rod ends might also cause a clunk, but its all in the same area you will need to inspect it to work out whats up.

    I would go for drop links first - usually first to go and relatively easy fix
