Front end noise over speed bumps

Post by Nokiaman » Fri Apr 01, 2016 6:06 pm

Today went over a small speed bump and heard from the front a sort of clunk click noise wasn't going fast and it was one of those small plastic ones did the same on the second one, drove round carpark again to pass over them again, as I went over the first one again a guy was crossing the road and looked over as I passed over bump so obv can hear on outside of car, only had the car a few weeks and have issues with marks on headlining, book din to het pics taken to send to vauxhall now this, is this noise normal as I've seen other posts talking about noise.

Mine also makes a 'clunk' sound if I take speed humps too quick or at an awkward angle. I remember someone saying about it before but can't remember what bit is is that makes the noise.

I also get this type of noise going over speed bumps but it sounds like it comes from the tailgate area

Not sure if it's the same noise but I've had a creak/squeak from my front end since it was 6 months old/6000 miles, only now have Vauxhall finally identified the fault and said its the anti roll bar saddle bushes which need replaced already on a car that's only done 14,000 miles!!

Mine has done 19K miles and I don't have any odd noises from the suspension and car has been mechanically perfect.

I suspect some of this will be down to the sort of roads we drive on. Mine is mostly motorway and A roads. I hardly ever have to go over a speed bump in the Corsa. If you have to drive over alot of speed bumps each day or over heavily pot holed roads you'd be better off getting an old Land Rover :-) Modern car suspension is not rugged enough to cope with repeated use over speed bumps, especially if taken a bit too fast.

I just wish on a 30 limit they would use humps you can actually drive over at 30 without destroying the suspension. I blew both front dampers on an astra trying. Company car though :lol:
