  1. Hahaha you lad I've got new shafts on the way now just gonna go through a process of elimination to be honest the car needs the tlc as I've been doing a lot of miles lately so new parts are well welcome to be fitted on in my opinion lol 🤘🏻
  2. Just my luck the weather cleared for 10 minutes so I could swap them over still having the same thing even with them swapped over will definitely change shafts now not much else it could be...
  3. I'll give that a go when the rain here clears off and I'll let you know the results
  4. No movement in the diff flange had wheel bearings done on both sides still same noise happening will try new shafts now
  5. It's makes noise from 20 up to 70+ mph. I know for sure it's not the cv's as I've had a good look at them and they are sound on both sides I was thinking diff maybe bearing maybe going or if I have a bent drive shaft as it has marks on it from rubbing on something. I guess I can get the wheels looked at for good measure too.
  6. Hi guys I posted on here a few days ago saying the car developed a noise I've since then changed bearing and looked at the cv's and all is well with that still have the same rumbling sound brakes do not affect the noise so my only other guess is a bent drive shaft(s) anyone with a similar problem had this fixed before any help would be much appreciated Thanks Kieran
  7. Yeah the car is stiff suspension has very little travel in the shock probably don't help its polybushed I have bump stops in but they could do with replacing have seen a better time to be honest. If it happens again I'll probably see if I can get some made from mild steel not ally since ally is weak but if they are the original ones then they definitely served there time doing some almost 21 years? I can't complain if they are original parts.
  8. Nope the nuts still in place I should imagine over the years of being on the road with lowered suspension has caused damage over time causing the failure might use a washer under the nut
  9. Honestly I've put new coilovers in about 2 months ago they looked fine no sign of cracks or splits a few days ago it developed a horrible noise so I went over the car looking for everything diff drive shafts and wheel bearings anything that moves really then I noticed this as I was putting the suspension bolts back in and heard it pop up top and the whole strut dropped down to the ground I then looked at the other side and it to has a crack developed have found 2 replacements now its this damaged after I was putting it all back together today me tighten up the bolts must have pulled too hard and sent it through the whole way I'll laugh if this isn't the problem of the sound lol
  10. Know any where to get one I've looked for ages and no luck yet
  11. Hi guys I need to know the part number to this bit or links to any thanks Kieran
  12. I'm just about to look at the shafts and cv's also topping up the gearbox oil for peace of mind
  13. Hi guys Been doing a lot of motorway driving lately and I think it's damaged something on the car it sounds like wheel bearing but with a juddering noise coming from the front of the car I've looked right over the car ie wheel bearings disc brakes suspension. Now I'm thinking about gearbox or the diff inside might be damaged I have oil to fill it up with to see if this helps but if anyone has any similar problems then please let me know Thanks kieran
  14. I used a bolt that has a bit of thread at the end the rest it smooth it's fine for now until I can sort another one
  15. Yes sir it is need a quick fix so I'm using a nut and bolt fir now 😮
