Re: RX4 Rear Coil Spring Problem - Clunk

Put it round the right way and problem was solved.

Good luck to you.
i had both rear springs replaced on our RX4, after a few weeks a serious banging ,knocking noise developed on the n/s when towing our caravan , it got worse(,the spring was bowing towards the rear of the car and hitting against the drive shaft ), then i read this post and checked the springs, and found the n/s spring had been fitted upside down. (so much for a garage repair, will do it myself next time) after turning the spring up the correct way all is well, thanks for the nudge in the right direction!!
