Rear control arms - XF
I changed my rear control arms about 2 months ago with second-hand but still good control arms from a wreck that I bought.
I know using second hand bushes is not really a good idea but I thought I would test these ones to see if that is what was causing the clunking in the rear end whenever I change gears or let off the go pedal and bock on to it.
The bushes that are in the control arms that I put into my car are nolothane. Now I know these make the car noisier. For the first few weeks, the car was great, no wheel-hopping during wheelspin in the wet, no clunking, all was good.
But now it started to come back about 2 weeks ago, and ever since it started it just keeps getting worse, almost to the point it was at when I changed them.
I followed the service manual for the removal and installation of the control arms, but I am wondering if it could be something I have done or if the bushes are stuffed.
Any help/comments appreciated.
Do I really have to write something funny in here?
