Hi all....again.....I've noticed this knocking for quite a while. The cars had all new struts and springs and I recently replaced the drop links to try to cure the noise. It's knocking/rattling from what seems like both sides of the front when I'm going over bumps and it sounds bloody awful. I've had it back to vx 3 times to no avail infact they even daid they couldn't hear a noise ffs. In all honesty it seems to have made it worse. I've just had it laser aligned by a tyre and suspension place and hoped they'd of found something as I asked then to check it all over but they said everything is fine which is so bloody annoying. Has anyone else had the same problem and managed to find and cure what was causing it ? It's a gtc 1.4 turbo.

Discs and pads, front struts and coil springs and drop links all the wheel arch clips. Flew straight through its mot 3 weeks ago no advisories at all. I did ask vauxhall to check everything when they did the mot due to the knocking and they said all good they couldn't find anything

I agree with you. I do all my own work usually but all the suspension was done under warranty all the rest if the work I've done myself. I had the same sort of knock with my astra J 2litre diesel turned out to be the anti roll bar bushes and lower rear arm bushes.
