Hi guys, I need some help, my 350Z has just failed the MOT  - front suspension failure.  I have seen on other forums that this is not that uncommon, are there any fixes I need to know, any help welcomed, thanks in advance.

Yes, more details would be appreciated.

It could be weeping dampers (refurbish or replace); broken or heavily rusted springs (replace); or banana arms and/or bushes wearing out or rattling (again replace).

A bit more detail from your man would save you having to do the whole lot, perhaps unnecessarily.

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.

2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.
