Hey all,

Lowered my corsa c on 40mm APEX springs. Car is on 17s.

When I go over a bump when turning (what seems only to be to the right) for example a road which has a turn which isnt level, down then up or whatever, I hear a crank on the left rear of the car.

It seems to be when the car goes down into the hole and back up when it is turning to the right, and the noise at the left which suggests a balance issue?

What can this be? New springs making the noise just cause, they are new, or rubbing or some kind? Sounds more like a deep crank than a rub?

Anyone who has a corsa c, when u put handbrake on and bounce around in the car (hahaha not what it seems) it makes a noise - its similar to that but deeper?

Any help would be GREAT! Im sure one of you experts will know what I should do - go back to garage??

well, mine is lowered and i have a sebring zaust, the zaust clip is banging on the torsion bar over bumps ATM hence the left side is where the zaust is.
take a look see if the clamp is in line with the torsion bar (can see without jacking her up, oo er)

1200 16v mate, take a look at the clamp, its knocking on mine, and only does it sometimes some bumps are different, its not doing anything bad. a way to test is to fill your car up with 3 people and then drive, if it happens more then its what i thought
