    Hello gents/ladies


    Recently lowered my Clio 197 (grams springs and new cup shocks - will post a review and photos later). A week or so after, when stationary, steering is making very weird noises.

    This is not my video, but exactly the same issue and sound.

    If anyone has a clue as to what this is, please let me know.

    Video --->


    Cheers

    It's probably the lower ball joint(s).

    I can offer you uprated ball joints. Send me a PM.

    Thank you for that! I will wait for a pay day and send you a pm @Raptor6767

    If I am correct, the lower balljoint is the one that screws into the suspension arm - No.2 as per the graph above?

    Thanks :smile:

    No, that's the wishbone. You probably need the #26.

    bottom joint is more a "swivel joint" than an actual ball & socket joint

    but sounds like it - see if it does it jacked up
