Clonk diagnostics


Recommended Posts

Anyone got any idea what could be causing a clonk my landy had developed

1984 rangy (underneath a defender body)

It's a single clonk coming from the rear axle when the vehicle changes direction of lean (on roundabouts for example)

All the bushes are tight and as new, prop is as new, A-frame ball joint is a few months old, Scorpion +1 springs and shocks, diff / halfshafts are a tiny bit worn, wheel bearings and nuts are fine

And there is nothing lying loose in the back of the landy either <_<

Did you do the A frame bushes. I know it's a hobby horse of mine <_< but they are so often forgotten and so important.

Do you still have a Boge strut? If so there is a ball joint at each end of that, again often forgotten about.

Do you know the history of your bushes? It is practically impossible to tell how good they are with 2 tons of Landy sitting on them (unless they are really shot), so don't rule the bushes out unless you are sure.
