Rear Suspension Issue.

Recommended Posts

Hi, i've been getting a knocking noise from the drivers side rear suspension. I took it to my local Indy & was diagnosed at the rear Top Mount, which was replaced. However the knocking noise is back so I decided to take a look myself.  When the car is jacked up & you lift the wheel up by hand & let it drop there's a knock / clunk that seems to be coming from the top of the shock absorber, I checked the other side & it was silent.

There is no oil leaking from the shock absorber so could it still be the shock or something else?


Hope somebody has some answers.


Many thanks.

I found the drop links on my car to be noisy.  These are the links that connect the shock absorber bottom housing (hub carrier) to the anti-roll (sway) bar.  They are easy to replace at cost about £20 to £25 each. I have just replaced all four and noticed an improvement.

Check that the hexagon nut at the top of the strut assembly is tight while the car is on the ground. There should be no movement of the stop plate (inverted washer) when the nut is tightened down.
