My cars developed a banging noise turning in to a gringing noise pretty loud, will come on for few mins then go off for longish period of time then start again from the drivers side, iv had it to vxl who said it was the gearbox/diff
this was changed and noise is still there
so then they said it was the end cv joint and cv boot as there was grease on the inside of the wheel so today i changed that and the cv looked ok once stripped down but replaced it anyway, took it for a road test and noise is still there
the spring and shocker look ok, it will do it on a non bumpy road and bumpy road, also does it in or out of gear if its free wheeling.
im really pulling my hair out cos i dont know what else it could be, iv checked the drop links and they seem ok, i could change both drop links and both bearings over and see if the noise shifts but i dont wana buy any more parts and waste money and the noise be still there
it only does it when the car is moving, if its stood still and im revving it there is no noise so it cant be the bottom end of the engine
