Hi all,
Still running around with the same problems on the back end (4 months on). The noise is from both sides of the back end.
Have been told by a garage that checked it out that it might need new springs, I have also been told it's bushes..
(which ones?)

Need to pin point it before I spend any money on it.
235K and she's still going strong.....
(just a bit of a saggy ar¤¤!) :-)

Springs are far the most likely, I'm on my third set of spring on My espace iv. the car seems to stradle the speed humps ok because of its width with no release sense that you have just gone over a speed bump. I am suspicous of the qulity of th erear springs
