    Have been doing the bags and shocks along with numerous other bits and bobs and was hoping that when I changed the shocks that a creak/clunk noise would disappear. It is on the RH front and occurs when the suspension is rising or lowering or when jacking. As the suspension rises it seems to stall on rising and then goes up with a small jolt. Where would you think this was coming from?

    Had an iffy one recently on my mothers car, it was OEM and only 60k...

    very very stiff to axially twist, creaky as a creaky thing and quite aural on a manual bounce test...bring back grease nipples on everything I say.
