    as a rule, it'll usually be the anti-roll bar drop link. failing that, check the anti-roll bar rubbers (situated further along the roll bar).

    Probably the drop links. Mine used to make funny sounds going over slight bumps. A doddle to change yourself and not too expensive either.

    if, for example you look at the drivers side, you need to turn the wheel fully to the left. take a look behind the wheel and you'll see a link/bar in the vertical position, with a nut top and bottom. for the mechanically minded like yourself, it should be self explainitory from there. no frills or special techniques apart from it'll probably easier with the wheels raised. best of luck mate.

    not a lot, haven't bought for a while but i'd say in the region of £15-£30ish per side?!
