    Default Is that a turkey under your car? Help!!!

    Hi guys I have been getting a weird noise comming from the rear of the car everytime I go over speed bumps or along a rough road.My wife recons it sounds like a turkey. My mechanic inspected it and found broken rear springs, worn upper control arms and a prob with steering rack. I have just paid to have Eibachs fitted all round and both the other probs fixed but still the noise persists. The mechanic is at a loss as he says everything else looks Ok and says when he drove it the noise does come from the rear and sound like a pigeon. While Im not a expert on bird noises it is ****** anoying, any ideas what it could be?

    And before anyone asks I will post pics of lowered car ASAP along with other mods I have done recently and kept under wraps

    Cheers

    I bet its the boot rubbing up against its stops. On the Vec there is a sort of plastic/rubber V that the latch goes into and that can make a funny noise. Try putting some silicone grease on there and see if the noise goes away.

    Put some vasaline on rubber stops already m8 but will try some grease on catch. Thanks
    I have a 2500mile round trip shortly and this noise will drive me nuts in less than 100
