After lowering the car my MINI has produced a knocking sound from the rear suspension(?). I'm not alone with this problem as we have been discussing about this in my project topic. The knocking sound can be heard almost all the time when driving on uneven surfaces, but it is worst when driving on stone pavement/road.
I'm almost sure it is something related to the top mount, drop links or anti-roll bar. I have made sure everything is tight and fitted like they are supposed to be fitted.
To narrow things down:
- Can I drive without the rear anti-roll bar?
- How hard is it to remove the anti-roll bar?
- Can I drive without the rear drop links?
Will one of the above cause more knocking sounds from the suspension?
