I'm still having problems with my rear suspension after replacing everything. I have new rubber cones, Matt Read Hi/Lo's, and have fiddled with short and long shockies.
When I had normal length mini shockies I had a clang tinnie noise when I think they were extended or compressed past their limit.
Now I have fitted van/estate length shockies I feel a different kind of solid clunk.
The problem is my driveway is 45 degrees which requires a run up in second gear at about 40 km/hr in the wet to get to the top. This creates a hell of a lot of force on my suspension. In the dry I just put it in first and power up with plenty of traction no problems.
The problem is it is making a hell of clunk which to me sounds like it is going to break or bend something.
I did break a trailing arm pin hitting my driveway this way with the original flat donuts and trumpets.
My trailing pins are still intact and my Hilo's aren't bent for now.
I'm having regrets now for throwing my old trumpets in the bin?
I have wound out the HILO's so that I have a lot more clearance/height than I would like and still have this problem. I think I needed to do this because the HiLo rods were lose even against brand new cones? I have plenty more adjustment, should I be winding these rods out more so that they are compressing against the cones ?
