Recently when going over an uneven road surface I can feel an offside front rattle. It's nothing major, but you know what it's like. Better dealt with now, than leaving it to get worse.
I renewed the upper control arms and lower arms, ARB C link and ARB front and rear bushes in Autumn 2011 at 127k. The parts weren't Meyle or Lemforder, but they weren't cheap Ebay copies either.
Car is now at 153k. I jacked it up last weekend and looked for the tell-tale signs such as upper arm wear at balljoint, but it looks tight. There is a little movement when rocked back and forth (holding tyre at 10-to-2 position). Incidentally when I brake, then reverse and brake again I sometimes hear a click. I thought this was brake pads moving, but it fitted Brembo pads and discs all round a couple of months and everything was tight, anti-rattle pins, etc.
Got me thinking - could it be an inner tie-rod? And if it is - is it a pain to fit? I'd probably fit new outer tie-rod end too to be safe.
