Ok then folks, I'm back again...Well apparently my trailing arm bush did need doing...BUT....New ish problem...
Recap of problem:
The back drivers side tire area seems to be making ALOT of noise (clunking) when I go over any uneven road and or pot holes etc. It also seems to have a mind of its own and flick out occationally befor re-aligning itself...The new information is that while my mechanic friend had my car in shop, he was prying and banging everything to see if anything was lose or worn, it was only when he got fed up and kicked the back tire...that it made the noise which I had been descibing to him.So in short, if you are facing the tires and kick the right hand side of it (rubber part) it makes the noise a normal tire should make, but when you kick the left side..It makes a very loud hollow clonk noise. Mechanic isn't sure what is causing this. I have rotated back tires to see if this resolves problem...and well it doesn't. So wondering if it is possible for the brake drum or something the tire is mounted to could be warped? It is bolted on tightly but still seems to have play on the left side hence making clonking noise..Please if anyone has experienced this or has any advise can ya let me know as my mechanic never had this problem with previous cars so not sure what to do with it....:help:conf
