not the usual knock

hello im wondering if anybody has had the same problem. i had a knock from the rear so i replaced the shockers as bushes split, noise was still there so i fit some polybushes in the shockers noise still there! i then replaced the axle bushes fit some lowering springs and bumpstops and to my dismay noise still there!i put a new stainless exhaust on and this also made no difference, the knock is doing my head in any ideas?

Re: not the usual knock

hello i think its coming from the fuel tank area either something has collapsed inside or the tank is moving, there is nothing else in the area i have had it on a ramp and there is no play or movement in any of the suspension, i have not had chance to investigate further. Do you have the same issue?

Re: not the usual knock

I too have a noise sometimes and have had new shocks all round did wonder if it was the aftermarket exhaust trim I fitted hitting the bumper as there's only about 30mm clearance ?

Re: not the usual knock

well mine was standard and i still had it, maybe its something bedding in? Seems strange if it is, but mines gone so maybe something has fallen off.
