  1. I changed tires and that solved the loud clunk in the rear! All that and it was just **** tires :cursing:
  2. Thanks for the suggestions. I did change my motor mount last year. I don't really have much vibration and don't think this is related to trans mounts. I just changed driver side rear trailing arm tonight and no difference was heard. I also re-torqued my 3 bolts on top of strut to 27 ftlbs, they were a little loose, but still no difference. Your suggestion to the tires makes sense. I do have a different set of rims and tires for the track. I am starting to think it could be a tire issue. Currently running Conti Sport II with 5/16 tread remaining in the rear (50% left). Plan to put new drop links on this weekend and will see if that changes anything...
  3. Over the last year, I have experienced an increase in noise in the rear suspension, esp. over joints in the road at highway speeds. I have replaced sway bar bushings-no difference, one rear trailing arm-no difference, and am about to replace one rear control arm (which has a torn rubber boot). I have on order new drop links for all 4 corners which I will be replacing next week. I am starting to think it may be the struts? I have read on other posts that the struts really don't go "bad" until you se them starting to leak. Is this true? There is no leaking on any struts currently. I have been reading about the top mount for the rear struts - is this a common part that goes bad? 03 986 with 62,000 miles. I do track the car about once a month for the last 2 years. I have made sure all is tight and to prober torque. The sound is a loud bang (louder than what is used to be) over joints in the road - this does happen even at low speeds. The car handles great. What do you guys think? Thanks Jason.
  4. When you say "differential 0 ring" are you changing because of a leak in the gear oil? I ask because I think I may be leaking gear oil - I see wetness comming from the pass. side trans where the lever goes into the transmission for gear changes. Is there a seal there? Thanks.
  5. It sure wont hurt to clean your MAS. Careful not to drop the two screws that hold the MAS in place when putting it back in :) Also, good suggestion to replace front engine motor mount. The mount only lasts around 50000 miles. Mine is getting a new mount today. I will keep you informed how it is afterwards.
  6. I just replaced my rear wheel bearing last week using the Sir Tool B90P2. My hub was somewhat worn - had spun on the bearing at one time(you can tell by the wear markings on the hub). But, it did get pressed in with the Sir Tool with pretty good force and was a nice tight fit. If the fit is not tight, you will mostlikely need a new hub.
