    Making funny sound, but noone knows what!

    Right i have an odd one:

    My car makes a really strange and pretty bad noise when you go over speed bumps, or any bumps!

    Its been into a couple of garages for other things and nowt piked up on it, and it went in to have wheels balanced and they said they couldnt see anythink wrong with springs, wishbone etc etc

    I dunno what to do, im having a car fixing session on saturday so if anythink is wrong i want to do it THIS weekend!

    Im thinking it could be shocks but they should have piked up on this shouldnt they?

    Helpp lol!

    Anyone in Fareham area that could pos have a look?

    Is it like a clunking noise?, but i take it the droplinks and all the bushes are OK?

    If it's a clucking then this might sound funny - have you had the disc's or pad's done recently?

    i had a noise coming from my suspension i had it in 3 different garages they said my anti roll bar bushes were fine but then i told um i wanted them replacing and the noise was gone so summit for you to think about mate non of the garages picked up on it.
