Clunking front end

  1. Just posted in another thread, so I’ll move to here. Clunking banging noise very apparent coming from underneath at front end, have inspected all that is visible but all looks good , is this a beam related problem ? I’m lost .

  4. I had this once and then an issue with the shocks, that was my two knocking noises from the front, turned out wrong front shocks had been fitted, cost me a new front beam until the error was spotted !!!

  10. Knowing the P.O. probably hasn’t got one . Does it need one, do all bays have them ?

  12. Yes if your suspension is otherwise normal. Coilover shocks can compensate for not having an ARB.

    Otherwise ball joints may be worn.

    If lowered by an idiot it could be stock shocks banging on their end stops.
