  1. Update on this. Turned out the gears and pins inside the LSD were really sloppy and had a tonne of play in them. The clutches were surprisingly good. New LSD unit and now she's as tight as ever and no rear end knocks. Thanks to Mobile Diff Repairs in Dandenong for the great work. Thanks everyone for the advise and help 👌
  2. Update on this. Turned out to be the gears and pins inside the LSD being super slack, there was a tonne of play. The clutches were surprisingly good. New unit in and all good now, not one clunk/knock in the back and feels super tight. Shout out to Mobile Diff Repairs in Dandenong. Do have a knock though putting the car into reverse and changing from 1st to 2nd, sometimes 2nd to 3rd. Have a feeling the lowered leafs have thrown out the pinion angle or tailshaft making the centre bearing bump because of the flex in the shaft. What have you guys done to fix this?
  3. Sorry for thread mining but does anyone have any more info on this? My roll over noise disappears too when I slightly push the clutch in to line up with the brake pedal. I can't seem to find where this hole is to put a bolt through on the master cylinder. Has anyone got a pic perhaps?
  4. it comes from the rear left predominantly , might be just a quirk of the car, it's been happening for the whole 8 months since I bought it. Naturally I didn't notice it when I test drove it as I had rose tinted glasses from that turbo whistle 😂
  5. In the rear it's doing it. Haven't even touched the front yet 😂
  6. So I got Suspension City to have a good look over it and identified there wasn't enough grease in the front eye bushes. They slapped some in and off she went. Awesome blokes to deal with too, so helpful and quick. Did it on the spot. They also mentioned that the springs winding up like that were normal! Bugger me. I'm getting the odd knock here and there when slow turning. Buggered if I know what it is! Thanks all for the help!
  7. Fixed two really annoying squeaks in the centre console lid and in the dash cluster. 3 or 4 more to go 😭
  8. Everyone is saying it's normal haha It's just the creaking/clunking I can't get my head around! Agreed. I lurk too much, have for years until I bought one and only think to post when it's pi$$ing me off haha
  9. @camo86T Would you be able to take a pic of the underside like I did?
  10. The old springs tramped like crazy. Haven't put these to the test yet as I'm just a bit worried about how they sit. Had quite a few people say that's how theirs are but a couple mobs say they look way over loaded.
  11. Thanks mate. The springworks joint suggested a rebound but that's an extra 600 odd to reset the leafs and put a rebound in, almost double what I paid for the HD leafs! I had poly bushes in the standard leafs and they never creaked. Only carried on a little when the ubolts weren't FT. It's a manual.
  12. Any reason why it'd be clunking/creaking so bad mate?
  13. Just installed some brand new kings leafs in my ute. FOR303SL. I noticed that the back has a nice arch but at the diff they pull upwards then they curve the other way. I'm getting a bit of knocking from them. I took it to a suspension workshop in Geelong and he said the front camber is pretty off making the ends open up and clap. I gave a springworks mob a call in Melbourne and sent the bloke some pics and he said they look fully loaded like theres 400kg in the back and suggested a rebound leaf to pull the camber in better. Already paid for heavy duty performance leafs, don't really want to pa
  14. Does yours have an LSD? Mine is definitely most noticeable from the passenger side wheel area but will sometimes get the double clunk. I got the centre bearing done and that eliminated some things but the rear clunk is still there.
  15. Thanks mate. If you happen to remember or find out could you hit me up? I'm reading a lot about clutch plates knocking.
