    suspension noise ?

    My astra g (04) 1.6 8v has developed a grateing/rubbing squidgy sound when going over speed humps,its ok on the road only when going over the humps.

    i put each front wheel over the single humps seperatly and no noise,put both together and the noise is their,i have sprayed all the bushes with silicone to no effect,any ideas.

    Id be 99% sure its the anti roll bar link rods

    A replacement pair can be had for less than £20 and take only 30mins to fit - start to finish.

    You'll need 2 jacks or 1 jack and axle stands - one to support the weight of the car and the other jack to compress the suspension strut to allow the rods to be replaced.

    cheap and simple to do.

    u might wanna give the nuts on either end a good goin over with WD40 a few days before tackling them.

    Heres the link to the ones I use: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-G-98-04-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Hi had the car in at local vx garage,had to have the anti roll bar bushes replaced.
    got a case number from vx as my warranty had ran out only a month and a half ago,they contrabuted to the cost of the repair,they replaced the whole lot and the end links and wishbone bushes,these wishbone bushes were F.O.C.

    If its the same noise then try the link I posted above!

    Its a common problem and is a piece of piss to replace.....gotta be better than letting the grease monkeys at vauxhall get their dirty little mitts on it and rippin u off in the process!

    Id basically get the car up in the air and check for excess play on all the bushes - particularly the drop links.

    I have already replaced the drop links about 1000 miles ago so I am left thinking its the Anti roll bar bushes.
