It is a known fault. Probably needs new bushes. Jack the car up and see how much movement you get.

Had this on a Mondeo, the links really need to be disconnected at one end to check them. The anti-roll bar pulls on them when you jack them up, so can make it difficult to check.

Wishbone bushes your meaning Pete and Dave?

If I never fit a Mondeo set again it'll be too soon, full replacement arms needed as it's easier and cheaper.

Smile Re: Knocking front suspension?

Thanks for the replies, sounds like i need to change drop links and bottom arms to be sure on a cure.I have found the drop links for 15 each and bottom arms for about 35 each, is that about the right price i should be paying? thanks again
