    Default Knocking front and back

    Hi chaps,
    had a look over the car, and seem to have knocking front and back, any advice or help greatly appreciated,

    seems like the bushings are flaking on the front ARB on both sides, the right (drivers side) drop link can be moved freely with no load on the shock, i wonder is this normal?

    with the rear i have some pictures and i wonder is the knocking caused here... the rubber bushing in the uca's seem to be perfect, also the below seem to be relatively new!!

    unfortunately the rubber that did exist in the below image seems to have completely eroded, would this cause the knocking? i forgot to check my rARB (if i have one), my rear shocks seem solid but the rubber on the bottom of one seems "burst".

    any and all help, advice appreciated,

    regards Dave.

    For the rear, you've stated that the UCA bushes seem to be perfect. Is that from looking at them? There's usually no visual indication of wear, you need to undo the outer bolt, lift the end of the UCA clear of the hub assembly, push a long screwdriver through the hole and tilt the bush up and down - there should be good resistance and a smooth movement. With worn bushes it will be too easy to move the inner part of the bush. Less commonly, it can be excessively hard to move it because it's gone almost solid. Either of those scenarios means you need to change them because they're the cause of the noise. The rear lower bush you've shown a photo of isn't the cause - everyone's looks like that.
