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

HI Folks
another newbie and still driving the old Gal, still got some life in her yet!

Vibration When Driving Under Load Mk1 Focus 1.6

12 November 2012 - 09:46 PM

Hi newbie here
got a problem with the old gal!
when under acceleration 45mph+ with car load the whole car seems to vibrate then immediately stops when ease off the throttle,
i have been told this could be a drive shaft, drive shaft bearing, cv joints disc warped etc.
I have changed discs pads.

this only happens when under load!!
its not really bad but very irritating and embarrassing when you have a car full, you can feel it through the whole car.
any idea's would be helpful.
