would say check the top-mounts are tightened up properly & also springs seated correctly as said above.

maybe cos the suspension is stiffer, its showing up worn suspension bushes & ARB bushes more...

cheers for the replies lads, i've got a feeling it might be the exhaust and axle, i might try and put some rubber round the axle where the exhaust hits it....saw a thread which had that idea, do you reckon its any good?

also should i get better rubbers for the exhaust, i also read about veccy ones?
