    Default Rear suspension knocking noise, help

    Hi all

    I have this irritating knocking noise coming from the rear of my 52 reg 2.2 sri

    I have replaced the rear shock absorbers, but this has not stopped it,

    Any advice would be great

    Cheers Clive

    Check the rear top control arms, they are common for the bushes going. There's a how to for it I think.

    Edit; Yep, HERE it is.

    No more knocking

    It was the rear anti roll bar bushes,

    Fixed with a roll of black insulation tape
