Hi everybody, i'we been reading all posts, searched google, but found almost "0".
Car 2003 WRX , 136*** miles, no mods to engine, no mods to exaust etc.
Only upgrade is:
4 tokico d-spec adjustable shocks struts i belive on stock springs with stock top mounts.
I got my car 6 month ago, all was fine and tight, after my trip to San Francisco from Colorado my rear driver shock quit, i found 2 used shocks to put in the back of my car for 50$, while i send my bad shock to be replaced under warranty. It happened in September, and i got my new shock in February, so my friend/mechanic took out old ones and put new ones back in.
All top bolt tight and springs installed correctly.
My problem is:
Well i have this awful noise from the back especialy when going over cracks in the road, potholes, even if it's 0.5 -1 inch deep. Sound like something loose, and metal binds to the metal, when under car, can't find any loose parts, don't know what bushings should look like, but seems to me they ok. And the noise is the worst when i go over bump and turn, it feels like whole back going to fall apart, it like you hit the metal covered with plastic.
The same sound comes from front but quiter with the same symphtoms.
It's quiter when it raining outside .......
Help me to identify, or if anyone lives in Denver and willing to help me to identify the problem before i waste my money, i was thinking to replace all bushings , but have no idea if it going to help.
Any reply and advice will be hightly appreciated from you.
