2.4 sport wagon rear suspension banging
Can you guys give me some pointers please.
One of my rear struts collapsed due to corrosion of the spring mount.
Autolusso suggested and supplied sports pack units complete with top and bottom mounts ready to drop in. (great service by the way) They also supplied new drop links.
I fitted them over the weekend and apart from removing rusty bolts, it was straight forward.
I removed the brake calliper, two lower mount bolts, drop link to strut bolts, the unit was only held in place by the main top nut, undone from inside the boot.
Reverse fit and tightened the top nut with the wheel off the ground, was this a mistake?
Now when I drive over a bump it knocks, or if I bounce on the rear of the car.
Sound like its coming from the rubber top mounts, do they need to be tightened under load or could I have over tightened any of the bolts etc?
