Right now i need your lots expert advice as it seems being a mechanic myself just isnt enough! :head: Whenever i have a passenger in my Cinquecento when i go over a speed bump (slowly) i get a loud 'twang' from the nearside (which the passenger can feel through the floor) you would say it is the shocker bending ant the top mount twanging, it has had a new lower arm, anti-roll bar outer bushes, both shockers and top mounts, springs are good and the engine mounts have been checked and there tight and it still does it with all new parts but as i say only with a passenger on board, any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks Tracy.

You sure it isn't the seat.. also the floor mounts can be prone to cracking

Definiately not the seat, it is outside the car on that nearside front wheel area. U meaning the floor mounts for the seat?

Which ARB bushes have you got?
Just wondering if it's popped one of the brackets as some aftermarket ones have been known to.

Does it do it over every bump?

No not every bump it may only do it once on a journey or a handful of times its very irratic, i replaced the ones that bolt onto the arm with genuine fiat ones, they do not supply the inner ones anymore apparently but they looked ok, from what we can see there is no fractured brackets etc we are always putting it on the ramp just to give it a once over, had this noise for a couple of years now tho and it would be nice to fix it.
