My car bangs :P

Soooo,

My front passenger side wheel bangs when I hit little bumps or holes on the road. What would be causing that to happen? Could it be the struts?? Just know the car is super low in the front, the rear not so much.

You may have blown a shock, or is it only when you turn?

hmmm, yea for some reason the tire only rubs on that side of the wheel well when I turn. Then when I hit bumps or holes it bangs. Would getting some new coilovers & raising it fix the problem?

Could be many things such as: bad ball joint, tie rod end, wheel bearing, or an axle. Just need to get it in the air and give it a shakedown and an inspection.

Re: My car bangs :P

Sounds like a bad ball joint... But it's not that hard to figure out suspension issues... Jack your car up remove wheel, move suspension parts around till you locate the sound...
