HI ALL! MY GF'S STREET KA HAS A CLONK/RATTLE COMING FROM THE RONT SUSPENSION. IT HAS HAD IT SINCE WE BOUGHT IT 5 MONTHS AGO BUT I DROVE IT THE OTHER DAY AND IT SEEMS TO BE GETTING WORSE. ITS AN ANNOYING RATTLE WHICH SEEMS WORSE AT SLWER SPEEDS GOING OVER SMALL BUMPS NOT BIGGER POT HOLES?
WOULD IT BE THE ANTI ROLL BAR BUSHES? HEARD THEY WERE A COMMON PROBLEM AND IS IT A DIY JOB?

ITS A 2003 30K MILES? WOULD LIKE TO GET IT SORTED AS I THINK THE MOT IS DUE IN THE NEW YEAR.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

hold onto the anti roll bar & pull it back & forth as the rubber
bushes perish on them
easy job to do & cost's about 5.00 for the parts.

if it's not that them it maybe the droplink
again an easy one to do

push on the wing to make the car bounce & listen for any noise
may be good to get someone to hold the drop link when doing this .

if it's not either of them then it's the wish bone
bit more work to do this but quite an easy job
half a day to do both sides.

costs about 30.. the pair

look here for parts m8

need any more help just ask as i have done all this work on my cars recently
