    mk3 major problem

    hi its my first post here . Ok i have a 98 mk3 astra sport and it started to make a knocking noise from the front when going ova bumps and sometimes turning . Then a month later when i put brakes i noticed that it sounded like i think the F left wheel making a noise ( like when the brake pad need replacing very slight grinding noise) same as just going on metal to metal but after a while it when away . Now i hear a clunking noise and also clunks when changing gears every now and again also its seems to be pulling to the right last night i put brakes and it make a grinding noise and steering pulled sharp to the left after that all seemed ok no more noise or anything untill i when going ova a bump then back again so near my house a tap the brake and no noise then i started to stab the brakes (like putting brakes on fast an hard) like as in emergency braking then one major bang or knock came from the front and i shat my self . Very worried about this can any one throw any light please . Thanks for reading and sorry for a long post
