So, of course being paraniod as I am about driving the merc now since I just got it running. I've been hearing a few noises.

When I go up into driveways or make a sharp-ish turn it was making a "springy" metal sound down by the front wheel. After a couple times, I hit a bump and it was louder and didn't do it anymore. May I have broken something? Hopefully it's nothing more than a mere endlink or something. But, I wanted a checklist of things to look at as I'll have the front wheel pulled off tommorow to look for worn or broken componetns. SO, what should I check?

Broken spring, or a shock may not be connected also look for a busted endlink...

I'm just hoping it's nothing that will cause a loss of control, ju kno, mang.

i remember when i put new spings in my car it did the same thing till i hit a big bump, i guess when i put them in that they werent seated right, so they went into position by them selfs.
