Re: Au3 Weird Noise

Hey Mate,
I know it sounds obvious, but have you checked the wheel bearings for all 4 wheels as this causes the whinning noise under brakes, I also fitted new tyres to my AUII last week and they now whin under braking so it could be a wheel alignment issue.
as for the clunking sound, sorry mate all I can suggest is getting the front end checked over to see hot the tie-rods, ball joints, idler's etc are.
Hope you get it sorted.
Cheers

If you can catch it.............. You can have it!
