help, rear knocking!!!

I have a 1997 GTV and I have 2 problems, when I turn a corner I am getting a loud knocking from the rear right end, having jacked up the car I have found that there is a bit of play in the wheel vertically, I think its something similar to a wishbone problem which is usually found on the front end. Secondly when I accelerate there is a loud crunching and grinding noise coming from just in front of the steering wheel, I also feel vibrations through the steering wheel. I think this might be an engine mount. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: help, rear knocking!!!

Hi there,

the rear knocking is a worn bush on the your rear suspension arm. As far as I know you cannot just replace the bush. you'll have to replace the entire control arm.

Not sure what the crunch sound is...let me know if you find out
