Hi all, I'm hoping someone might be able to shed some light on this for me...
Over the last two months ive replaced just a bout every suspension component on the car both front and back.
The only parts I have NOT replaced are the dampers, rear ARB and trailing arms. I have ordered billy b8's which should arrive next week sometime..
Anyway, since doing the work the car has performed very well, especially after having a 4 wheel alignment done, i really couldn't fault the handling..
However, over the last week, and much more so today, the car has become very very crashy over bumps, its become unstable and the rear feels loose around corners.
I have tried the bounce test, and although the dampers have done 150,000 kms, they dont bounce, but a squeak has developed in the rear now when you bounce the car hard.. thats new...
I've never had a damper fail on me before so I don't know what it feels like, but i wouldn't be surprised if that's what it is, given their age.. I hope thats the problem as Ive already bought new ones so its an easy fix..
Can anyone shed some light one this? would it be dampers, or something else?
