My Largo Highwaystar has just started making a few very slight knocking noises when going over some bumps in the road. Crying or Very sad I think it might be the link rod bushes or possibly the anti roll bar bushes.
Has anyone else suffered this problem and what did you do to cure it?????

Steve, had the same problem and found it to be the link bar bushes. When changing them I found the link bars them selfs were shot. So got some new ones and bushes and now the Largo drives like a dream.

Thanks for that Loungelizard1 Smile

I thought I might have to replace these bushes so I will try and source a new set asap. Might as well do the anti roll bar bushes at the same time then it should just "FLOAT" along the road, well at least should hopefully get rid of those nasty knocking noises. Cool

I have just had to replace my top bushes last wekend as they were absolutly shot, especially the N/S. I replaced with poly bushes as will last much longer than the rubber ones and it made a HUGE difference to the ride and no clanking from the drop arms. I would recomend to any one to change to POLY ( IMHO of course ).
