XF Suspension Jingle

hey guys... my 1985 XF GL has something wrong with its suspension...it still drives and rides fine but recently it has started jingling whenever i go over bumps..i cant get the car to do it while its stationary (like jumping on the tow bar) so has anyone got any ideas what it might be...

thanx, Slabz

Re: XF Suspension Jingle

Metallic jingle (like keys), or more of a squeak?

Re: XF Suspension Jingle

stuffed shocks, or could be the rubber thing missing from the spring making a sound

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

Re: XF Suspension Jingle

Also check your door handles, I had a rattle/jingle/whatever you want to call it, and it turned out to be my passenger front door handle, the little rubber stopper was gone.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

i'll check that but it only happens when i got over bumps, etc (ie. when suspension comes into play). all my doors are screwed anyway... RR works fine, Drivers and FL u need to push in when pulling handle and RL won't open at all from inside or out since saturday night (dam drunks in my car)...
