    Default Rear Suspension problems?

    Has anyone else had any problems with the rear suspension.

    Every time i hit a decent size bump, the nearside rear corner seems to viabrate violently for about 2/3 seconds.

    Any ideas??

    I have checked all the bushes and they all seem ok to me, tyre pressures, bearings etc, and it all seem in order.

    Someone suggested the shock absorber is knackered, but i dont want to go replacing it unless i'm sure thats the problem(if it turns out it is the problem, i'll replace the whole suspension and lower it)

    It will be the shock not damping the spring. A common weak failure point on the vec's and siggys
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thought that might be the case, but wanted someone else's opinion too.

    Might be time to slam it on the floor while replacig the shocks.
