    Default realy bad knocking while coasting

    iv got a realy bad knocking noise from the rear (as far as i can tell) that only happens when coasting. the noise will stop when i slightly accelerate or when braking it will stop but come back when letting off. this would make sense to me if a driveshaft was gone but the noise im almost certain its at the rear. iv jacked all wheels and cannot find any play in anything which is realy annoying! noise is worse the slower you go. any hints or help greatly apriciated! its a 2.0t signum 04 plate

    ive tried putting the handbrake on while driving and it still knocks like crazy but shuts up when footbarke applied so i didnt think it would be but worth a look tho! to add to my essay i wrote b4, i have just fitted coilovers and there is slight wear on the inner tyre treads (this was there before i fitted coilovers) on the rear but cant find any play in any bushes but hopefully gonna get it up on some ramps tommorow and have a look underneath properly

    after thinking it was the rear at fault, it wasnt! marc vectra you were right! i took the front calipers off to check pads/discs/ bearings properly and one of the pads had broken up. i still didnt think that it was the problem but hoped it was and unbelievebly to me it was that. id never have thought that just a broke up pad could cause such an absolute racket. not complaining though!
