Rear Suspension Noise

Recommended Posts

Hellos again:

I have one more question. I have a noise from my rear suspension when going over a slower bump at slow speeds sounds like rrr-rrr-rrr I just installed new bilsteins thinking it would take it away and the ride and handling became much better. Is there another component I should look at or change.

Thanks

Hi, I might have had the same problem. If the same it's a simple check and fix. The nuts on the studs holding the rear suspension side member had come off-torque. Re-torqued them correctly no more noise going over speed humps etc. See image.

I have a similar problem with rear noise. I cannot tell in the image that you provided if it is just the bottom nuts or that there are also some nuts at the top that must be checked. Could you comment? Also, is the torque value 81lb-ft or 34 lb-ft?

Many thanks.

Hi, only bottom nuts. The bolt is actually a long stud into the chassis. The torque for the two nuts is 81 ft-lb. While I was there I check all the torques for the nearby nuts.
