Re: Knocking sound, rear end AU XR
XR8fella, I had the same at only 11,000k's and its happening again at 40,000k's.
Its your top bearing plate which mounts to your chassis and the strut. The rubber insulator lets go/splits and causes knocks.
I'm surprised who ever put your Bilstein's in did not inspect/ notice this as they have to take these off to replace the struts.
Mmmmm labour again
