    please help. is this noise from suspension ?????

    Please help if anyone can. I have got a4 1.8t s R reg I put new FK coilovers hide & ride adjustment about few months ago. The problem is on a slight bump car making noises from back suspension or somewhere in the back its like klinging(clunking) noise like spring noise. Someone told me its top mount but I have just changed top mounts as well but noise is still there. What else it could be??????????????? Unless the suspension is faulty. I spoke to the person I bought the suspension. He is telling me he sold loads of them but he didnt have any complain like this in a past. So can anyone help me where this noise coming from & what else it could be apart from suspension. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img]

    only thing I can think of is the rear beam bushing. What mileage is the car?

    Can't think of anything else mate. If you've done the top mounts and the suspension is new the only thing I can think of is the bush. Unless you disturbed something when fitting the suspension - exhaust etc? highly unlikely though.

    I my suspension is standard at the moment but when accelerating hard from a standing start it sounds like something clunking in the back!! Strange! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Can't really make a judgement call without experiencing the noise dude [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Are FK alright? Not seen them before.

    Best thing to do is take off the struts again and double check they are seated in the cup and top mounts. Get some pics if you can.

    Oh I didn't realise it was Koni. Should be peachy then. Better than my homemade stuff.

    You know it could be the exhaust if you've got a loose rubber and the harder suspension is causing it to knock on something. Know what i'm sayin?

    I very much doubt my following experience is a solution for your problem but I thought those with suspension problems will read this thread.

    I had quite a loud rattle from my car. I could only hear it with window down while travelling over bumps.

    Anyway while changing out the rear pads and disks I found a 20mm Dia stone had become lodged into the lower suspension arm. This was the source of the metalic rattle.

    a4 turbo is your car a quattro? Your profile doesn't mention. I suspect not. If it is, I still have my old S4 suspension you can have for free.

    A4 turbo,

    I replied to your PM not knowing your car is a front wheel drive A4. I'm afraid the quattro dampers and springs are completly diffrent on the rear.

    Sorry for getting your hopes up and I hope you get something sorted [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img].
