Initial's EA series 3 probs :P

Hey guys,

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 of the diff, 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 :)

don't know about you're knock only right turns, my brothers VN comode had a similar knock and was caused by sway bar rubbers non existent in one side.

ball joints etc effect the overall wheel align even on the opposite side, could be camber problem also especially if you've lowered car and not had camber fixed
