    Loud BANG when going over a bump?

    Today, I was driving at around 20mph over a bumpy road, and went over a dip and all of a sudden, I heard a really loud bang, it was horrible - made me feel sick! It wasnt a dragging or scraping noise, it was as though the suspension had bottomed out! Has this happened to anyone else before? Is there anything on the underside of the car that I should check?

    Could have been your sump. I've smacked that a few times as the car is lowered and that makes an awful bang.
    Could have been something flying up in your arch, I had that a few days ago when I drove over a spoon, that made an awful bang too.

    check your front lower arm rear mounting bush for lateral movement, (front suspension.)
