07 Impreza clunky suspension
Posted 18 November 2012 - 11:09 AM
The Impreza sounds a lot clunkier than the OBW. Is this normal or have I got some issues? I thought it was my imagination until I drove the GF's OBW & nope, I wasn't imagining it.
I know that the LH rear strut is leaking & needs to be replaced, but the clunks seems to come from both back corners.
Can it be the upper mounts?
Looking at how many companies make them, I start to think that they tend to fail. Is this the case?

I'm surprised that they would degrade enough to be noisy after (only) 5yrs and 140,000km.
When both my outback started to develop clunky sounds coming from the rear, I replaced the rear stabilizers. Tthey are not real expensive and often are the noise that you hear.
