    Hi all
    after a long days work on my car I thought it was worth sharing how bad my rear bumpstops and top mounts were, I knew they were bad hence the work but I don't think I appreciated how bad until I got them off and they started to crumble.

    Before

    After

    My car has just clocked 140k miles. This particular job was easy in my opinion and both sides were done in about 3 hours including replacing the rear discs.

    The only thing holding them together was the bolts.

    Gees, thats really bad, I can't really say I noticed any noises coming from there, did you? Those rear arch liners are useless, they trap all the **** you want to get rid off.

    Just a squeak over uneven ground then metal to metal contact and straight into workshop two days later with no driving in between.

    Garage said pretty common issue!!!
