how much would it cost to do the suspension and the bushes?

it could be any of a number of things.. try describe the sound and where its coming from (front or rear). is it massive pot holes or happening even when u come out of a driveway? is your car lowered?

yeah went to bowers suspension in newcastle today and they said it could be due to a wheel bearing that needs adjusting..... but i dont think this is the only problem :(

yes it if lowered and it is front and back.
the tyres rnt scrubbing at all and i have never had a problem with that

the front could be a wheels bearing and i think something to do with the steering mechanism

check the steering rack bolts aren't loose, this sounds like a weird problem, what are all the bushes like (swaybar, trailing arms, etc)?

yeah steering rack bolts are always loose, for me they made a crackling sound when i turned my steering wheel slowly until i got em tightened..

you said your car is lowered: do you have a camber kit? after i got mine fitted, if i go over a seriously large bump it makes a clicking sound and it turned out to be one of the bolts sticking out from the camber kit clicking with my spring.. i just let it be coz i dont go over big bumps anyways

happens when i brake hard as well since my car tips forward
