Did you get to the bottom of this? I've been having bother since I installed the Bilsteins and they've been rebuilt a couple of times so far. Cannot replicate the noise no matter what I do but there's definitely a common link between these Bilstein shocks and noise as I'm not the only one.Aloha wrenches,
I have this 05 S 110,000 miles with a clunking sound coming from I think the rear as I drive down the road, going over bumps, or turning; it's hard to narrow down. I'm trying to fix it for the owner who is off island. I've turned a few wrenches but I'm worried I'm over my head on this one, or at least standing on my head when I took the photos, and I can't get them rightside!
Owner previously redid the lower control arms, and looks like an aftermarket shock- see Pics-
what am I looking for, the owner thinks it is the Trailing arm Bushings and has ordered polyurethane.
If I use a pry bar at the front of the trailing arm how much should the trailing arm move?
Could there be a washer from the aftermarket shock that is rattling around?
How can I find and fix this clunking sound?
Thanks for any help
