Brakes on Clio 1.5DCi

I recently drove over a road hump at a local car park and my car now seems to be acting strangely. Whenever I've driven over other road humps since, I get a bad jolt/jarring from under the vehicle, worse towards the front wheel arch. I also have a squeaky break and my clutch squeaks all the time anyway! The car seems a bit laboured when accelerating and changing gears etc. The vehicle in question is a 1.5Dci Clio Dynamique (2006). It is going into the garage tomorrow anyway to have a modified radio fitted (during the cold weather the radio stopped working - a common Renault fault apparently), so I'll get them to look at it then. Any ideas as to the problem?

Re: Brakes on Clio 1.5DCi

It wouldn't explain all of your symptoms,but you may have snapped a front coil spring and this is causing the strange behaviour over speed bumps now.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
