    i would check the condition of the rubber mountings that go on top and below the springs too while your there as over time they can perish

    I get a bumping noise at the back and think it's the plastic undertrays on the swing arms they certainly feel a bit loose and rattle about a bit, maybe worth checking before you pull your suspension apart.
