      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Steering creaking yet again

    possibly front suspension top mounts, they are usually bearing mounted, so when wheels are turned and suspension struts turn they move freely. the bearings do and can dry out and basically giveup. it possible where car has been up on ramps for repair that this has released pressure on said bearings and freed them up a lil only to tighten again a few or days later, in my expirience these are what give the notchy turning with popping sound you described. a possibility though!!! note...it also can just be a sided problem i.e only one side effected
