This'll explain it, Can't wait to try the car once the powerflex black's are in.
Yeah mine knock, booked in the garage to get them sorted and 2 new rear springs also.
i think it should be rule of thumb, as soon as you buy an e46 m3, just change the RTAB's
Had same and worse, in fact, if that's not a split case one it's pretty darn old so a good one in a way.
Free with big end bearings lol, seriously though there would be a lot of folk changing 6 month old ones how these cars change hands.
Easy enough to inspect and if required test with a pry bar
Looking forward to seeing how the car is when they’ve been changed, most of been well gone since I’ve owned it.
They are ok until they go and they go all of a sudden, the same time the knock appears.
It will be a night and day sort of difference! Will be like a completely different car. Just make sure you get a wheel alignment done ASAP.
Scribing around the bolt heads before removal is always a good idea
Exactly what I did, thanks to YouTube
Can I join your club, my near side one has just gone today. The rear end has felt a little loose over the past few weeks, I thought it was down to the rear tyres needing changing.
Need a couple of other jobs doing so I think I’ll book it in at Auto Haus in York.
WW not seen them that bad.
wow thats pretty bad, wasnt your tyre tred going really quickly? I remember when mine went, my tyres would wear very quickly.
My tyres were touching the front of the arch on braking and the rear on acceleration, night and day once changed to powerflex blacks.
Felt glued down.
is it recommended to get the tracking check after having new trailing arm bushes fitted (along with 4 new tyres).
Mine failed rear bush caused the steering angle sensor fault warning lights to come on the dash. All cleared now and the steering is back central.
Should get alignment checked with any suspension components replaced or just removed and refitted or new tyres.
I rotated the tyres front to back on my other halves GTI the other day and now the steering is slightly off due to the tracking being redone recently for mot when the tyres that were on the front upto now were half worn. Torque steer of course was wearing the left one quicker so tracking is out now with two almost new tyres back on the front
So is the old man gonna put your rent up now you've got a supercharger
