Turn, Clunk Clunk Clunk

Recommended Posts

hey i'm getting this problem somewhere either in the breaks or the steering rack or thereabouts. it only seems to happen after longer periods of driving, like maybe half an hour or so and in the heat. i'll turn and hear this kinda noise that's like a dull clunking. it seems to be made worse when the breaks are under load, but it does it regardless anyway. any clues? i'm sorry my description is fairly, well, non descript but if anyone has any ideas that'd be handy. thanks guys.

If its on mild to hard lock and sounds like a clicking/clunking it could be your front cv joints as elk said. Try doing full lock circles while riding the brake in 1st gear. Go resonably slow but not slow enough to stall the engine and load it up using the brakes. Also try adjusting the amount of lock while your doing circles. If you hear the noise while doing this its most likely cv's

I got the same problem with my car at the moment , i think it is a CV joint , it doesn`t do it all the time , most of the time it when i turn on un even ground ie turn up a drive way , i got next week off work so i will have a look and let u know what i find.

my mate had a bit of a look and said there was virtually nothing left on the bushes on the little link arms that come off the front sway. assuming it's either that or the cv joints, do i need to worry about driving it much?

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
