PostSubject: Odd noises from the back   Fri 29 May - 1:01

I've been getting some odd noises from the rear of the car lately and I'm not sure what the problem is. When I'm either going along slowly or stopping I get a thumping noise from the rear passenger side. The noise sounds exactly like I've got a football in the boot and its bouncing around. I've checked that the spare tyre is secure and the jack too. My wheels are tight and the exhaust is not catching the cross member. The only thing I can think of is maybe the rear shocks are on their way out or maybe the bushes need changing. Inbetween this thumping noise there is lots of squeaking rubber type noises. Does this sounds like a knackered shock to you or maybe something else?

Sounds like the shocks could be on their way out, bug eyes and blobs are known for shocks knocking

I've got standard shocks with some Sti pink springs that have lowered the back quite a bit. I've been trying to see if the tyres are rubbing but they don't seem too bad to me.

I watched a video on You Tube where some American bloke fixes the rear suspension on his Subaru Outback, the noises you could hear were exactly the same, a thumping noise and a squeak too. He fixes it by replacing the top mounts and bushes. Anyone got some top mounts for sale or even some rear struts?
