recently changed my springs all round, 2 wishbones with new bushes and 2 drop links at the front as they was all worn. got the tracking all sorted and cars fixed!

about 2 months ago my UJ joint ceased up.. i had it un-ceased and it seems alright now.

anyway when im turning wheel, either side.. up until 10mph (ish) theres a crunching noise.. i reakon it might need a new UJ joint, what you lot think ? could it be anything else?

Could be the steering rack. I had a crunching noise on mine at parking speeds... just before it failed its MoT.

Maybe that bolt in your steering column snapped again?
