Some spannering that Kenny! As comfortable as multi link double wishbone suspension is, there are lots of things to wear and squeaks to chase. Cars used to be like this, Rover 2000, older Honda Accord to name two. Then cheap Mac strut took over on everything, pretty simple. Is your steering rack holding up?

HI All,

As promised a final update re my ongoing saga.

Replaced upper pivot support and test drive done all quiet. :-D

Thought I would have a look at old support, it would appear the lower axle bush was moving partially in and out of it's mounting. This was confirmed by taking 2Ib Percywhat'sit and giving the bush a bash with a 27mm socket out it came with 2 strikes.

Nothing obviously wrong with support but I have NOT checked with vernier gauge to see if it is oval.

After fixing this I decided to bleed my brakes to remove some air front the front in particular. Offside successfully done but the nearside bleed nipple decided to shear off. :x
