Hi all,

When i first bought my car i had a clunking noise comming from the front of the car and it was narrowed dwn to the anti roll bar links. Now over a year on and the bloody same noise i think has come bk.i notice it more when i go over bumps and it clunks. are they easy to change as dnt really want to spend money at a garage at these money tight times?

Cheers all

You don't say what car you have but they're generally easy to replace. I'd be surprised if they are knocking again after such a short space of time, unless they were incorrectly fitted.

It's a good idea to replace the ARB mounting bushes at the same time, especially on an older car. Fitting new ARB links/dogbones/call them what you will, suddenly creates greater movement of the ARB itself.

Hi

Is the car due an MOT?

They can check all bushes etc at that time... an dof course fail you if badly worn.

An MOT tester will most likley use a long lever to stress the joints/bushes and check for movement or play. You can do the same with a hefty screwdriver when jacking up each corner.
