    On my way home from the kebab shop, i noticed ( inbetween songs) a knocking noise, it was continuous, a rate of 2 a second, but it stopped a bit whilst accelerating, burt when easing off the accelrating or going at steady speed it was just going, knock knock knock knock etc. And noticed sometimes pushing down the clutch pedal in first it made a knock sound, also when i was taking a right bend, it was very shacky, it felt as if my wheels were all loose, they seem ok, havnt checked to see if there all tight yet. What could this be. I think my bushes have to changed anyway because when going over bumps a bit fast the car squeeks like a dodgy spring. :mad: hope its just some bushes or something!

    found out what the kockcing noise was !. my front wheels bolts where loose! like finger loose!, stamped on the bar this time.

    But yer the squeeking is down to the bushes so will get some ordered sooon. If you dont replace them can things get worse, its been like it since ive had the car. ?
