Clunk from Offside front after storing for Winter

Recommended Posts

Picked my NA up from its Aircon Storage and when I pulled away on right lock there was a single "Clunk" from the front O/S. Turning Right into my road not on full lock, it did it again "Clunk". There is nothing loose and I remember it doing it a while back once but didn't hear it again.

Now I am obsessed and taking it out it did it again on turning right.

Thing is, it's just passed its MOT so it can't be any of the Bushes can it?

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

My vote is for a RHS bush as well.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

In order of cheapness: ARB bushes, ARB drop links or wishbone ball joint but all of these are MOT items and shouldnt have been missed.

The ARB bushes and drop links are fairly easy to see if they are worn and cheap to replace. I did mine earlier this year as I had to replace the NSF lower wishbone as the balljoint was toast - this was not a fun or quick job!

I'd get ES to inspect it properly on the ramp.

Mine did this tonight........

I replaced ARB bushes and drop links less than 500 miles ago.

Very strange noise! Only at crawl on full lock......

Will let you know if I work it out.

ARB bushes need to be kept lubed up, or they cause weird thumpy noises. This would be my suspicion.
