    Rear end noise

    I had put on my Madmam LCA's a couple years ago and there was/is a slight increase in noise. It sounds like a loud bumping or like a loose piece thumping around. The bolts are tight though. I expect them to make some noise because there are no bushings. NOW, I put the Panhard Rod on and tighten it all down and the sound really sounds like something is going to come apart. It seems to come from the left rear. I am not sure what to check, look for, etc... Idea's?

    I have a similar problem. I installed SLP 3 point weld ins. No problem for the first couple 100 miles. Now I hear a big thumping/banging sound from the back right every time I hit a bump in the road- like something is loose?
    I'm not sure if its the sub frame connectors or something else? I went to the dealer and he said everything was tight and OK- but my instincts, tell me he didnt really do a GOOD inspection. I will be taking it to a mechanic I know on a personal level, very soon.

    It never happened until I put the Lower control arms on. It didnt happen when I had only the subframe connectors...

    Make sure nothing is "bound up" from improper installation. all pieces cannot be torqued until sitting on the ground with the chassis under load.

    I put them all on when the car was 'loaded up'.
