2 Problems - Both Mysterious
Problem 1 : Turning left at high speed (70+) is VERY unstable. When you start to turn left its normal, then suddenly with the next bit of the turn it will jolt violently, controllable only if you are expecting it. Its been like this for well over a year, I brought the Laguna from my parents and they said when Renault serviced it they never picked up a problem, and I had it serviced by Kwik-Fit and the same.
/Update/ Offside lower ball joint!
Problem 2: Very noisy rear suspension, garage thought it was the broken springs my car had, but after replacing them no difference. Sounds like something sticking, almost squeeky but not high pitched. Happens over 50% of speed bumps. Garage mentioned that some real axle rubbers had worn, could this contribute to the problem or is it likely to be something bigger than that. /Update/ is just the suspension bushes, yet another common Laguna problem.
Thanks for any help in advance.
Currently in DaneC's garage:
'03 Laguna 2.0T, previously '91 Clio 16V
