Mileage?

Do these symptoms occur while braking or during any other stressful situations on the suspension such as cornering on a downhill or uphill turn?

Have a look at the bushes in the front of the rear trailing arms the bond give and the arm hit the mount I change hundred of them They are mounted up in the body so youll have to get right under to check them. Only drawback is if theyre renew you have to have a KDS that is all four wheel alignment, this is because the mounts are the adjusters to the rear toe.

Or shock mounts. Think they nornally go about 100.000 miles but it depends on how the cars been driven in the past.
