Angry banging from under bk car - cinq 1.1 sp

just a lil post..

when i brought ma cinq the owner told us of a knocking coming from under the back but when drivin it it never seemed that noticable to me, over the last yr it has got worse, only seems to knock when i go over a bump or dip in road etc, is so annoyin tho, im guessin is somethin to do with suspension or bushes, if so how much am i lookin at payin? or wat else cud it be? please help!

stressed tinks!

Almost certainly the rear bushes. Awkward to get the old ones out, but possible, search of other threads on how to do it. Cost of new Powerflex bushes about 50 a set

yep, probably rear radius arm bushes.

Mine are on the way out too, they werent that noticable at first due to other rattles [exhaust] but now those rattles have been shut up, I have started to notice the bush getting noisier.

I plan a 'guide' when I carry out the job in the next 2 weeks. [unless somebody has beat me to it by then]

Could also be the exhaust so check all the rubber hangers are there and in good condition.

Re: banging from under bk car - cinq 1.1 sp

will have been a piece, for rear its 4 bushes, so 4 bushes at £14 each = £56, which is about right tbh

If you are in Northwest, or Yorkshire where most of their branches are based, then Andrew Page LTD do rear bushes for 10.79, part number KK10
