    Slight noise coming from astra sxi 2006

    Hi

    I have a 2006 1.6 sxi astra and when I drive on a ruff roads (cobbled streets) there is a like a clonking niose coming from front of car and i also sometimes hear it when turning left but not very often.

    Any ideas what this could be?

    diagnosis, fitting and supply, probably 100-150

    might be a roll bar bush, which is cheaper, but if its the lower ball joint, then as above

    don't want to pay main dealer prices

    Just a local garage, I wouldn't trust him with a job like this. Lol

    Anti roll bar link. Find a decent independant, don't rely on the good garage scheme.

    Got the car checked by vauxhall and they found the following

    Both front drop links worn = £126
    N/S Bottom Arm bent and damage to strut, Ball Joint - Right Side Worn/Damaged = £423

    Are these prices reasonable ??

    Now that Vauxhall have found the issue, goto an independent garage & the bill will be 1/2 the price
