    Default Clunk when pushing the rear wheel

    Hi all,

    had a search to see if I can find anyone else suffering from the same issue but no luck...

    I have a clunk when going over bumps, I have already replaced the shocks as they where well and truly dead, however the clunk is still there

    If I push and pull the wheel from the top it make a clunk when pushing but not when pulling, and it only does this on the top of the wheel and not the sides.

    had the wheel off and can not see anything obvious.

    any ideas?

    cheers

    It might be one of the bushes on the suspention,they have a tendancy to wear out from time to time. more so if you pull a trailer or caravan.
