I'm hearing a slight knocking sound from my front suspension. I was told during a 4-wheel alignment that I had a cracked left-front sway bar end link, but that it wasn't anything major. That was confirmed by a Porsche dealer last fall, but they didn't have the part at the time. I brought the car to another dealer in the spring, and they told me there was nothing wrong with my end links. I wasn't hearing a noise back then, but the past week it's been noticeable.

Sound familiar to anyone? For all I know, it has nothing to do with the end link... but, to spot the condition of the end links myself, is it possible without putting the car up?

1999 C2 stock without M030.

Brian,

I have noticed when I have jacked the car for various service DIY projects, and the front suspension "hangs" in the air ( with wheel still mounted) the springs can shift position on the upper spring strut seats such that when the car is lowered to the ground the springs then make a sound when turning as the springs are not sitting concentric on the seats ( typically the uppers have been my problem. To remedy for me, I simply jack the car such that I can insure the springs are seated concentriclly and lower the car and all is well ( no more sounds).

I have a 02 C4S, but would guess this is an issue of all models??

Good Luck!! Demosan :cheers:
