Knocking in front suspension

Knocking sound coming from front passenger side over larger bumps/potholes

I reckon it's the anti-roll bar bushes and/or droplinks - can anyone confirm this and recommend what to replace and with what.

Is it a DIY job - I am pretty confident with car works.

Car has bumpsteer mod, front Anti lift kit, eibach springs, Koni shocks and strut brace - is it worth doing the front/rear droplinks to reduce the understeer (which is now very noticable since driving Porsches aswell)

Thanks in advance
Paul

I would go with Anti Roll Bar bushes mate - certainly sound like them from your description.

I have never changed my ARB Bushes before but I have been told that it isn't difficult aslong as you can jack the car up and get underneath easilty enough. If they have gone then you might just aswell invest in some Whiteline ARB Bushes and Drop Links (while you are there) cos they will help the handling of the car no end

OK thanks, can you recommend a supplier or is it a direct purchase?

A couple of good places I have found for the White Line products are:

www.scoobyworld.co.uk
www.scoobymania.co.uk

A few to get you started - look under suspension and you should see the parts you need listed.
