It is not uncommon for the i30 to suffer from clunking or knocking noises from the front suspension, which is generally the result of wear in the top strut mount or bearing, the anti-roll bar bushes or the front stabiliser links. Naturally the First Line Group has replacements for these components in the First Line brand:
- Top Strut Bearing (FSM5020) or Top Strut Bearing + Mounting (FSM5404)
- Anti-Roll Bar Bush (FSK7115K)
- Front Stabiliser Link (FDL7091)
Another potential problem during cold weather is the shock absorber rubbers and dust boots, which sometimes fail and crumble.
