LH front suspension making a 'TWANG' noise sometimes when I go over a speedhump.

Could anyone tell me why my lowered ea/xr6 falcon sometimes makes a 'TWANG' noise when I go down a speed hump or turn into a drive way. Would it have anything to do with the end of the tie rod wearing or this is a common thing for a spring to do somtimes. and what is the tie rods purpose to do with the stearing.

The cars been lowered properly by a mechanic but it got done 5 years ago, its just started doing it now. Its got pedders suspension. But it needs better springs in the back because they pop out of line when you hoist or jack the car up.

well it was not lowered properly if the springs fall out it should have short stroke shocks to keep them retained. and if you cannot give me anymore info go to a suspension place and dont waste your the buttons keyboard out
