    Slight clunking noise on roundabouts and now starting on straights

    Hi guys any ideas I hear a slight clunking noise on entry and exits from motorways at speed and roundabouts it's still there when I clutch its still there it's barely noticeable on the straight what could it be, I thought it might be a wheel bearing but no movement from wheels With car jacked up, any ideas or ways of diagnosis thanks again guys

    Also the clunking speeds up with speed, I'm sure it's not engine as noise speeds up and slows down regardless if the clutch is engaged

    Either drop links as Ciaran said or ball joints. Cheap in both scenarios to fix.
    Hold my beer. 'll show you how to do it :-D

    If it goes with the speed it's not the droplinks is it your brakepads or a heat shield rubbing

    But a clunking noise, a shield would have a metallic sound

    Did you check the tires to make sure something isn't trapped in the threads

    Checked the tyres nothing in them pushed the heat shields back, top mount nuts fine could it be a wheel bearing ,or as you guys said some bushing Ahh I'm Gona drive it a bit longer and see if reveals it's self as it might get noisier, Ahh it's just a pain in the balls when ever u drive it and it's not proper

    I had a wheel bearing go in mine and there was a rubbing/grinding noise like a seized caliper or something rubbing on the disk. There was zero play in the wheel itself as apparently Subaru wheel bearings dont show too much wobble until they fail badly.

    Ciaran and the lads did all the work on my car. You're in good hands.
