Xantia suspension problem.

Post by randomx2 » 03 Apr 2001, 16:25

I have a shudder that seems to be coming from the front strut/sphere housing. When I travel on rough ground there is a rattle that can be heard inside the car. Spheres were replaced but problem still persists. Spheres may have been in a bad state for a while,could this have caused damage to the strut or housing ?

Just today I traced a front end rattle to a defective ball joint on the anti-roll bar drop link. I could only get movement with the suspension in the normal position. It's temting to put the suspension all the way up when you're looking underneath! Jamie Allmond
