    After rear strut bar install, weird noises help!!

    After installing my rear strut bar, I hear all these weird noises but they have nothing to do with the suspension. I didn't reinstall the seats or seat belt torsioners to test it out first and when I was backing up the car I could hear this slosh sound, like my gas tank sloshing. It sounds exactly like if you were to have a little swimming pool in the back and the water moves side to side. Also, you know how sometimes on a cold day when you back up you can hear the brakes on the rotor, I hear that too. Also, I can hear this faint electrical sound when I turn on the car. No CEL's just all these sounds that have nothing to do with the suspension. Someone please help!

    If you didn't alter anything and the only change is the lack of seats, you now have a large air cavity with little sound deadening. For example, the electrical noise is the fuel pump. I'm betting there's nothing wrong. Put the seat back on and see if the noises are reduced.

    Ok, i put back the seats and seatbelt bolt, and now their is no weird sounds, sorry for the false alarm. That's really weird though how a lack of seats can make you hear all these weird noises, like the gas tank for instance.

    The seats are thick foam with fancy dressing. The foam does a great job deadening sound. Plus, without the seats in place, the rear of the cabin extends to the bumper, creating a large, resonant cavern.
