yeah i just spent the better part of my day changing the rear shock mounts, i just got back from testiing them out, i still hear a metal on metal sound while going over bumps, anyone( who actually knows what they're talking about) got any other suggestions, les this is for you buddy help me out
Haha... did you tighten them while you had the car jacked up? If so... rip the stuff out and look at the RSMs... tighten the top nut on the shocks up... I had the same retard problem when I changed my suspension....
retard problem? ouch dude ouch, i did tighten them with pressure on the suspension i jacked up the shocks into place while the car was still on the jackstands, was that not enough pressure, i will do this tommorow morning, thanks bud
i'm guessing it might be the parking brake, like someone said, or maybe the rear brake pads jingling when going over bumps due to some broken clips. try the e-brake deal, and apply lightly to the brakes when going over bumps to see if the sound goes away.
yeah did the rsm thing, it's more of a metal jingling sound, i will try the e-brake deal, even with no brakes over the bumps it makes the noise, something has to be broken or loose, thanks guys for all the suggestions
Have you looked at the exhaust system? It snakes very close to the chassis and wouldn't take much to knock it loose from a muffler hanger or off alignment a bit. Then there's the classic cat-converter shield rattle but I assume you'd find that pretty easy. How do the muffler hangers look? There should be two fat rubber ones back at the muffler securing it. Can you duplicate the knock you hear by shaking the tailpipes?
