Rover 75 making clunking sound when slowing down.

I own a Rover 75 and can hear a solid metal on metal clunking from the front of the car when going over bumps. Also, there is a judder when slowing down during engine braking. I've had the clutch replaced, but the fault continues.

Probably anti roll bar sleeve bushes have worn out and slipped out of their cradles.

A fine looking car from all angles, until the 2004 facelift. Destined to become a 'classic'. 2.0 diesels proving to be good long life cars with excellent clubs and spares back-up. Up to 4 stars.
