Have you done any fault finding/replaced anything?

Cheapest option is a drop link, but could be strut tops, broken spring worn bushes etc etc. Best thing to do is get it on a ramp and check for play.

My other half's Ibiza started rattling from the front somewhere a few days ago and it turned out to be a dodgy drop link. Cost about £60 to replace.
So I was stood there trying to work out why the cricket ball was getting larger and larger...and then it hit me.
