there is a very good tell tale sign that the wish bones will brake.
keeping steering straight a little acceleration and you will feel the pull to one direction slightly, and gently brake will feel direction go to the another direction.
this happened to me.
Thanks for the info SM ...
it's something that really plays on my mind - and, is starting to rear it's ugly head with my current little Clio!

It doesn't help that I have well over 60 speed bumps and cushions a day to go over just to get to and from work! My Clio is just a little too narrow to get over the 'cushions' (hah! that's a joke - cushions!!) gently... and of course it would help immensely, if our local council maintained them properly
Currently in BillaBongBaby's garage:
03 CLIO 80 Billabong 1.5DCi special edition in metallic Blue or is it Green?
