    Hey guys, still trying to get more information on what my mystery knock is. so far i have replaced:

    New r32 anti roll bar and bushes
    2x new drop links
    2x new balljoints
    2x powerflex front arm bushes
    2x rear solid bushes for bottom arms
    Leon Cupra R top mounts and bearings
    Powerflex dog bone mount bush

    still got track rod ends and steering rack bush to fit but im coming to a loose end now, have checked the steering rack bolts, subframe bolts etc.

    only issue i have is that the Leon cupra R top mounts had alot more play in them than the standard ones i took off, has anyone else had issue with the LCR top mounts,

    In need of desperate help now as thinking i may sell if i dont cure this annoying knock :(

    thanks again

    Lee

    I recently changed all of the above (except top mounts) and got a phantom knock.

    I tried everything, finally got it sorted today.....before i had torqued everything up on axle stands, today i used some ramps and loosened off the rear wishbone bush nuts, then torqued them back up under load....knock has gone. Apparently all the wishbone nuts should be done up under load.....worth a try.
