Rear Noise

Hi,

Being new to the Mini Cooper world, I'm probably going to ask a lot of stupid questions, so lets get started. I think I'm pretty good at fixing and building things. I restored my 64 1/2 Mustang from the ground up and converted my 07 Harley Ultra Classic to a trike using a Champion Trike Kit, but this little Mini Cooper has me thinking I have to learn all over again. In my fifty some years I never know you had to rotate the piston to recess it back into the caliper. I broke my c-clamp before I decide to look on line. Then I let the brake fluid reservoir run dry and now I find out I need a BMW software to get the air out of the ABS pump. I don't dare tell my wife this, after an hour of helping me try to bleed the brakes with no luck.
What lead to this was my desire to make the ride a little better. I replace both the front and rear struts with Koni FSD's, which showed that the brake pads were worn out, so one thing lead to another. Now that I have it back together enough to drive it to the shop, I took a short test drive (I made sure the brakes work well enough to stop it) around just to check thing out. What I found was loud knock like sound coming from the rear on both sides. I looked everywhere and can't find anything loose, so I wondering if it's possible to put the rear strut top mount in 180 out, and if so, could that be the cause of the knock. I'm sure the shop can find and fix it, but if it's something I did and can fix first, that would be nice. So please pitch in if it nothing more that to tell me not to talk (type) so much. Thanks

Doug

More often than not a knock coming from the rear can be traced to wear in the rear anti roll bar linkage/bushes? Have you looked at those?
