    Default Knocking from the rear?

    I have Saturday morning put aside to try and find an intermittent knocking noise on the rear of my car. To me it seems like an exhaust knock, but still not 100% convinced. It's during general driving and I hear a slight knock intermittently, which is rather annoying!
    Any other areas I should be looking at?

    Cheers guys...

    Upper control arms or coil spring would be favourites

    Coils springs are new Eibachs, but was thinking upper control arms.

    Would worn upper control arm bushes give uneven tire wear? My near side rear tire is worn on the inside a lot more than the other side.. Opinions?

    Very much so. A worn bush will muck up the geometry, allowing the top of the wheel to camber inwards, then wearing the inside of the tyre.

    TBH steven you'd be better buying, or making a bush removal tool(rebellion did a thread) and just swap out the outer bush, or go to VX and buy arms from them, not ebay etc.
