clunking noise?

I get a horrible clunking noise when i reverse round to the left. What would that be? I'm guessing the bushes. Fine when going forward round sharp corners... If it is the bushes how easy are they to replace and am i better off doing both sides at once. Seen the other post, thats what gave me the idea.

Re: clunking noise?

Where's the noise coming from, front or rear?

If it's a regular clunking from the front, could be a driveshaft joint gone.

Could be balljoint, strut top mount, dead shocker, front bush (sounds rude!) or cv joint then.

Re: clunking noise?

Would all of them only occur when reversing then. Thats what threw me!

Will try some tight circles outside m house tonight. Neighbours will think i'm ****ed in the head, but never mind. lol
