Rumbling, grumbling suspension...

On the motorway or A roads my car is perfect, but I drove around a lot of potholed b and c roads over the last couple of days - rumbling and grumbling from the suspension drove me mad.

I've just had all the roll bar drop links replaced and that solved precisely nothing. Its also had new shocks and springs all round recently so I'm sure those are ok too.

I used to own a Saab 93 (which is has very similar suspension on the rear) and that gave exactly the same sound. I fixed that by buying very cheap (20 each) upper rear arms off ebay.

No such arms seem available quite so easily for the 159 but I've got to do something.

Anyone else had similar issues and if so how did you sort it?

Any help appreciated.
