    Jack it up see if it’s the same.
    thinking it might be a creeky top mount.
    There are 2 secrets to staying on top :- 1. Don't give everything away.
    2.

        With that noise and your concerns over play at the wheel, I would be taking it back to wherever you had the work done and ask them to investigate.

                Have them check the top mounts. I replaced mine with the current pieces of crap on the market and one strut would not swivel. It just twisted the spring as the lower strut moved. I reverted to the original 48 years old top mounts.

                  The car is being collected and original BL parts being fitted as like you say, the current products available are crap. Mine lasted a week!
                  Surely the parts dept of the owners club can start producing parts of a higher quality?
                  The cars are starting to appreciate now so it must be time for the parts to improve too.
                  It will mean we pay more but you pays your money...

                    The SOC does not have a parts department. It does have SOCTFL (Stag Owners Club Tooling Fund Limited) which can provide funds to enable research and tooling to assist with the remanufacture of obsolete parts. Details are in the magazine every month.

                    There used to be a section on the main website, but this is now missing whilst the website is being rebuilt. Perhaps a. SOCTFL section could be added to the SOC Club Business section of this forum?

                        No. I am sure Mike (Lingen) could give a potted history of the background to SOCspares.

                          Not anymore. I believe the Club was involved in originally setting it up, but Stuart Souter now has it as a stand-alone enterprise, although keeping the name. Mike Allen (Lingen) will be along soon with the definitive.

                            There is nothing more to add really. It has been Stuart's private business for many years now, but SOCTFL keeps in touch, as he has such a wide knowledge of parts and their availability-or otherwise!

                              but there's is definitely a problem with the supply of good quality parts for the stag as you will learn to your cost, after a few years and many wasted pounds and hours , where to buy what and what not too, the club is not interested in supplying you with details of what is right and wrong, so best to ask here before you waste your money!
