EA Suspension probs

Hey guys, Wasnt sure if this was the place to post it but...

While driving my EA around yesterday i noticed while the stacker was changing cd that there is a rather load "Knock" sound from the passenger side rear of the car, sounds almost like a Trailing arm? Doesnt happen when i turn left, only right?

Also my Passenger side tyre is wearing out very quickly. Its completely scrubbed out after 1 month. Now I know that the drivers side lower balljoint is worn and i was going to change that asap but Im not sure why the other side is scrubbing out... any thoughts?

Thanks :)

Re: EA Suspension probs

Hmmm - are you SURE it's from the rear? Why I ask is that for months I've been saying to my wife that the car has this clunk from the rear passenger side and only turning right - I'd jacked it up and had a look and couldn't find anything - I even transposed the shockies from side to side to see if that was it.

It progressively got worse to the point where it was happening regularly instead of occasionally - then the other day we were going along this RH curved driveway and there were undulations that made the clunk/knock happen really badly. Now, to me this sounded like the rear absolutely no doubt (I turned and spat some nice language over my left shoulder) - but my wife was positive it came from the front! - so I jacked it up and my fwd top arm bush was STUFFED!! The whole arm was just sloppy as buggery and rocking back and forth something like a couple of inches at the top of the spindle member. Rear bush was fine.

No certainty this is the same thing with yours but it could be worth having a good look at your front top arm bushes.
