A variation of the newage rear suspension knock!
 
Hi All,

I have read through several posts on various forums about knocking rear suspension, I have similar symptoms but wanted to check something with those in the know

Had my 03 WRX blobeye for about a year with no noise at all. A few weeks ago I finally got round to lowering the car on Tein-S springs and standard struts.

Since the change, the knock has appeared in the rear passenger suspension. I have checked all the mountings are tight but noise persists. no noise at very low speed (except aggresive speed bumps, pot holes etc) and only seems to happen over 10-15mph when i hit a bump. Very occassionally (1 or 2 times in approx 70miles) i get a creaking from rear left too

Does the known problem affect WRXs? threads only seem to refer to the STi

Before I look at new struts, is it possible the stiffer springs have just created the strut knock or made a previously unnoticable problem known? or is it more likely to be suspension top mount, worn bushes somewhere in anti roll, droplinks etc? seems odd noise only started after fitting the new springs?

Cheers
