Renault Laguna 2 - Banging Noise From Rear Suspension*FIXED*
I have a Lag II 1.9dci estate 2005.
I've recently fitted new shocks to the rear and new rear axle bushes which certainly helped tighten the back end up.
However I still have an annoying banging / cracking noise after speed bumps as the suspension settles.
I noticed while changing the shocks that the n/s top mount rubber for the
spring was soft and if I press a finger against it it appears to weep a little water which must be gathering up in the mount when roads are wet.
springs themselves are in good shape could this rubber mount be causing the problem by allowing the spring top to bounce rather than being firmly seated ?
