Hi just starting to have another problem if any one can shine any light.


i am starting to get like a kind of deep thudding noise from the suspension everytime i go over small indents in the road. the left side seems worse.
could it be the suspension leg, leg top bush or the lower arm bushes that are worn?
how can i check?

not sure if these could contribute to the other symtom that i have on the vibration thing
cheers

Have something to contribute?

It does sound more like the top mounts to me. I've had that on a number of older cars when going over uneven surfaces. Doesn't seem to be affected by speed bumps.
