    I know I know. Turn the radio up.

    Problem is the radio is busted too.

    So rolling along at 30 mph if I wind the window down there's a 'tinkling' sound coming from the front end I think. Also went i pull away etc there is a definite short , quite violent shake. I can avoid the latter if I can control the stop so as to take up the slack in the drive. UJ? replaced them all in the last year with the more expensive options. I've been underneath and there doesn't appear to be any play in them.

    Jack the wheels up and check for free play and unusual sounds, report back.

    Judder may be handbrake binding or possibly some clutch judder from contaminated plates.

    Could be your parking brake, if anything loose and its catching it can cause those symptoms.
