    Default Really, really annoying rattling/knocking noise...

    Ok, so yesterday I announced that i'm going to keep my SRi...So how does she repay me? Well, on my home today I noticed a slight knocking/rattling noise coming from the rear passenger side... it was very slight aswell, untill about another half mile down the road where the noise progressively got worse and worse, i pulled over and got out to check the exhaust - all seemed fine, was sturdy and firm, so cant be that right? All brackets and stuff seemed to be in order. I asked my dad and seems to think it could well be the shock absorber or spring. Anyone had a simillar problem? It doesnt sound good anyway, put it that way, and the fact that it had virtually given me a headache by the time i got home, makes it even more 'not good'. Appreciate any help, cheers. Al

    I think mine are US TBH, It occasionally feels and sounds like the back end is going to drop off it makes sucha ****** racket over bumpy roads!
    Is there an easy way to check as I have access to ramps on weekends and can fit them myself. I guess at 85k miles it will need doing.

    Yeah, jack it up, but a bar under the wheel and lift, you then use a finger to rock the top of the wheel and if it's moving it's shot.

    Excellent, will check on the weekend. I assume that by baring it up you're just taking any pressure off the bushes to test for slack in them?
