most people get sqeaks over speed bumps which is normally the bumpstops on the suspension or bushes from reading about.

could be a number of things. If its in warranty take it to a dealer and ask someone to come out with you so they can hear it.

if its coming from the rear end it could be your anti roll bar links, i believe the corsa c had a problem with them and they wear out

Not sure what it could be till i get it checked out, don't think its the exhaust cos its coming from the drivers side, sounds like its more or less coming from beneath me...

Tried it and it made the clunking noise when i did a 360 turning right. The noise only happened once or twice but usually sounds worse when I'm turning normal corners right

A steering rack isn't

A CV joint you can do yourself for the cost of a new joint, some grease and a cable tie £15

i had this exact same problem it was my steering rack
pretty sure if it was steering rack it would make the car shake but i could be wrong

mine didnt shake i just heard a clunk noise every time i went over a speed bump or a pothole and also turning and then the mechanic in vaux showed me the left hand side of the steering rack was really loose and had come away from the joint. luckily they replaced the whole steering rack under warrenty!
