| I have a knocking that appears to come from the rear. At first I thought this may be the exhaust "swinging" as the knocking starts when driving over bumps but isnt a single bump (as if something is grounding) there may be 3 or 4 "knocks" after driving over a single bump. On brief inspection, I see one of the rear dampers leaking, so I guess I need to start here.
Looking at a parts list for the rear I see :
arm / arm bush
Looking at rear for a moment, I have several questions :
1) Have I missed any suspension components ?
2) Which parts are recommended for change - I know I'll need to do this in pairs ?
3) Can this job be done with car on a jack and a basic toolset (do I need to compress the damper or spring during fitting, this would be a problem) ?
4) Is there a guide to doing this that I can refer to ?
On reading up on this issue, I see a lot of references to the front suspension arms. Could this be a suspect for the original noise problem? Is it feasible to change the suspension arm bushes without replacing the arm completely? Are there any common points to note on the front suspension? - Or any other suggestions ?
I understand there are a lot of questions in this post, but I am having trouble finding any further info on this, so any help would be much appreciated.
