Rear end hollow sound
« on: June 14, 2007, 12:06:13 AM »
I have replaced my rear shocks with new ones from the Mini parts place here in WA - these were about 2" shorter than the moke originals when fully extended.

Now when I go over small depressions I get a loose thud noise in rear end - is it the shocks or those icecream cone looking things in the suspension now loose?

Any solutions to my problem?

Steelo,

Put something heavy in the back, a good 50kg, and go for a drive and see in the noise is still there.

Common causes are worn shock rubbers, loose nuts, subframe mounts loose or two short shockers.

I sympathise. Since I started on my Moke, I too have a rear-end hollow sound. It is in my wallet.
