Question ED Falcon rear suspension



Hi Guys and Girls

Had some new shocks installed on my futura recently but now I get this unusual clunking noise whenever I go over decent sized ruts in the road or those narrow speed humps. The sound is coming from the right rear shock area. I've never had this noise before. The sound is similar to the noise when you release the fuel flap, sounds like something is hitting the body, it seems to only happen on the rebound of the shock/spring.

Does anyone have any ideas what this might be? What about the bump stops? My Falcon has coil sprun suspension.

Any tips/ideas would be great!!

Maybe its that when they but the shocks in they didnt tighen them enough try and tighten the the shock and see what happens. I had a simmilar kind of problem and tightning them seemed to help.
