Just had some suspension work done on the ACR -- Mopar S1 springs, Mopar stiffer front sway bar, adjustable rear sway, and 4 adjustable rear control arms. Also had the front strut "adjusted" as per the service update so as to get -1 camber front, 0 toe.

Now I'm getting a clunk in the rear of the car when I go over speed bumps. How to check what can be causing this? Wasn't there a known issue with faulty install of rear control arms (I think), but search is down and I can't find it.

Need some advice on things to check.

Thanks!

Could be the springs are not seated correctly.

Resolved?

This is what I was told-- there are plastic tabs that secure the trunk liner (?), that protrude on the underside of the car.

Tech said that the rear anti-sway bar was contacting the trunk liner tabs.

By flattening these tabs, the anti-sway bar no longer hits against these tabs.

I assume a big bump will still result in contact.

So I will see how this works out.

If he is talking about the tabs that are underneath the spare tire well, then I doubt it.

That area wont move up or down if the suspension moves. It is held static by the mounts and will only rotate with the suspension travel.

I had a very bad rattle in the back of the car and both of the passenger side lateral links and hardware had to be replaced. First time the tech had ever seen that.

It's back in again today for another rattle that came up.

My mods are Traction bars, Stock ACR wheels/struts/springs and Progress front and rear adjustable sway bars.

Ill let you know what they find.

Well, the noise is gone now.

The tech said that there is very little room to work with there, it's got basically a tiny bit of clearance.

I don't know, is it possible that it could be installed upside-down, or that L/R are reversed? (This is the Mopar adjustable anti-sway bar.)

I would think not, but maybe I should check. If it is possible to fit it in the wrong way, that might explain it contacting the tabs under the tire well.

Is there a way for me to tell just from looking at it from underneath? (Without raising the car.)
