    Default Crunching sound at rear over bumps?

    I get a crunshing sound when going over speed bumps at the rear of the car. It sounds like the rear suspension is old and rusty.
    Is that probably the case?
    I don't know when they were last changed, or how to check if they need changing.

    What could that sound be? and how much is it going to cost to fix?

    Thanks
    Dan

    Mine has just developed this noise on the front nearside... had the same problem on my Astra G, and it always turned out to be the stabiliser (anti roll bar) bushes wearing out.

    Mines gonna be going to the dealer next week so I can hopefully have it done on warranty.

    Mine made noises like that when the shocks were stuffed. After a brief but ****** fight, VM paid under warranty.

    Yep, mine too, rad bushes replaced but spring mod never carried out by Vantage Garages in Bury when they should have, VX will not now do the mod as out of warranty, if yours is still covered get it done quick & no excuses from VX or the stealership, U have been warned

    So what seems to be the cause then?
    and how much is it to sort out? Out of warranty...
