320CE grating sound when cornering
I have a 1995 320CE bought recently, drove very well on purchase and still continues to fell strudy and precise. However, the last couple of weeks a grating sound has developed when cornering. This was more pronounced when I had a passenger in the rear. The car has a skirt, although not particularly low, and the car didn't make this noise when I first got (and I drove it harder when I first got it to try out the 3.2 litres!). The shocks were replaced by the previous owner only 7000 kms ago and the noise comes from both sides, so I assume this is not the problem. A friend suggested it could be the bushes, is this a common problem with this model? I'm not mechanically minded and don't really know how the bushes work, appreciate some advice.
