Well I've had the car jacked up this morning.

I've checked all of the linkages for being loose or broken by using the old "grab it and give it a wobble test"

The suspension spring doesn't appear to be snapped either on checking it.

I did however find this as detailed in the photo.

As you can see the 'suspension/spring boot' is well and truly deformed and has moved.

Could this turn out to be the reason why I'm getting this metal on metal noise when the suspension is under compression when going over a speed bump?
