So yeah, when I hit a bump or something, I hear this jingling type of noise.

I was wondering if anyone had this before and figured out what it was.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

1992 325i.

Is the noise coming from the rear? Probably a rear shock mount

You can pull the carpet like stuff in the back away with little problem... just put your rear seats down.. pull back the linning.. and have someone gently push down on each rear corner.. if you see your crap moving all around.. then its time to replace your RSMs...

Good Luck,

Les

BTW www.rogueengineering.com sells some good ones... as does www.turnermotorsports.com

personally for shock mounts, get your hands on the ground control rear shock mounts. they are sooo good, urathane bushing, they have two settings, race and street.

, also id check the rest of the car, for loose or broken parts on the suspension, like sway bars, the links for the sways etc etc

The rogue engineering RSMs have the ability to fit either 10mm shocks or 12mm race shocks...

I think I may know the answer to your problem. Mine has a jingly noise too. It sounds like it comes from the rear suspension. It only is noticable when you hit small sharp bumbs. I was reading around on another forum and a guy said that wrong brake clips are ofter installed in the e36. I have not checked mine yet but you should be able to take the wheel off and wiggle the brake pad to see if this is the problem. If it is you can fix it for 5 or so $ I'm sure. Good luck

You know what- this problem might be simpler than you think. I had the same
problem with my bimmer. All it is, is that little stones fall into the undertray(the plastic panel under the engine) and bounce around when you hit bumps. Just lift you car and hit the undertray and reach for them with your hand. If not, then it most probably is your shock mounts.

I've had the same jingling problem with my 92 325i.....it turned out to be the exhaust heat shield and the clamps holding it on.....jingle jingle over the bumps, easy fix. Good Luck
