Rear End Swap Assistance
look people...right now I'm kinda pissed off...before doing the swap, my rear end suspension was working fine and without any noises, well...just the control arm bushings. I did the swap last thursday to a 2002 WS6 rear end with 3.42s. The thing is that everything is on its place, the only thing I did was the swap, control arm bushings replacement using polyurethane bushings, and installed new brake lines for the LS1 brakes as well as the e-brake cables, and after doing all that, suspension noises started. First, I figured out that the outside of the poly bushings didn't had enough lube, so lube them again, but this time with a lot of lube and the typical unlubed poly bushing sound is off, then I noticed that my car didn't had any bump stop rubber left, so... installed them today...and part of those noises were shut off...but still I have some metal part banging with another one, and that noise can be heard thanks to roads vibrations, especially thanks to road bumps... and sometimes, it feels that something is loose where the noise comes from, but I've checked EVERYTHING and all is fine, perfectly bolted. My shocks were working perfectly before the swap too.
The only noise that my car had before the swap was because of the control arm bushings, and because of the bump stops which I didn't had. but I didn't had the noise I 'm hearing. it's like a hard knocking what can be heard.
Can someone help me figure that out, because right now I'm ****ing up my mind, just thinking what can be making that?

Maybe the exhaust is hitting?

the car was missing the bumpstops... that helped most of the problems... that an had some brake lines hitting where they weren't suposed to...
