Knocking sound from the rear

Hello,

I have knocking sound from the rear of the car at low speeds, I've been told its the shock making the sound.

Could the knocking sound from the rear be a anti roll bar bush gone?
I was planning to go for the Whiteline Rear Anti-Roll Bar Drop Links, are these a direct replacement, or I am just getting confused?

Do the Whiteline front and rear ARB drop links make much difference to the car?

I'm going to get my mate to jack the car up so we can have a look at the shock in question before I get both the rear shocks re-conditioned from Bilstein.

Anyone had this knocking sound from the rear before?

Btw-The car is handling well, oh and hello to Dieard who said to come here

Well, the rear bearing has also gone. New noise this morning at high speeds sounded like a fan at high rpm but that's another matter. It's a dull knock from the rear at low speeds, quite intermittent

I also have a really annoying rattle from the rear when i go over bumps or cornering etc.

I have read somewhere that its a common fault on most scoobs and its something to do with the struts. I've heard of many people returning there scoobs still under warranty to get the shocks replaced and not 9 months later the noise starts again.


There have also been conversations about the top hats, possibly these that causes the noise.

All i know is that it sounds like the suspension is going to collapse! LOL

Its annoying.
