    Vx are simply going to trial and error on your car, and the skin you for £££££'s!

    Here is a video from a member on how to test your arms, VERY VERY USEFUL.

    This should diagnose or eliminate the rear arms.

    just changed rear suspension arms, noise still there, my shocks are leaking a bit, but wheel has stopped moving when you pull it do you think i should try anti roll bar bushes first, didnt want to buy new shocks till at least next month, so i can buy decent ones.

    Had a knocking/clunk at the rear, which was really noticeable when the car came out the drive over the low kerb onto the road.

    Changed what looks like a black metal boomerang (leaking hyd bush at one end) and it stopped – not sure if this was the suspension arm.
