    Hi all,

    Noticed in the last few days/weeks that when I get to near full lock, I hear a small knock or 'clunk'.

    Initially I thought it was the man hole cover on my driveway (because that's pretty much the only time I use full lock), but it's just happened again at Sainsbury's car park.

    Any ideas what this could be?

    I've recently lowered the suspension and have spacers on if that make any difference? Was done back in September time I think.

    Any help appreciated

    Just a single 'clunk'. I don't get any feedback through the steering wheel, but can feel it through the car (if that makes sense?!)

    The ultimate test would be get the front of the car up on jack stands and have someone turn it lock to lock while you have a look under the car and try and source the noise... or take it to a specialist and have someone take a look.

    I'm not a fan of knocks and noises in the suspension.... don't want to find out the hard way at speed
