Worrying about CGT-noises
My trusty 1985 Coupe GT has started to let out some strange
sounds. This afternoon, in heavy rain, I didn't see a nasty pothole
and drove straight in. Since then, I sometimes hear and feel a dull
thud or clunk, the same kind you get when an engine strut goes bad.
I hear it especially when shifting low gears. Also, there's a nasty,
grinding sort of noise when I brake after driving in rear.
Of course, I drove to a repair shop, had it lifted in the air and
checked the car together with the local mechanic. We looked at the
engine mounts and suspension - nothing seems to be wrong. The
guy tried rocking the drive train - nothing. We tried moving the front
suspension to see if there's anything loose - zilch.
Only this evening it hit me that we barely looked at the rear
suspension, since it felt like the thuds were coming from the front. I
might not be able to bring the car in for further inspection in the
next couple of days, but maybe someone on the list has had similar
experiences? Could damage to the rear make such noises? I'm
quite worried about the grinding sound that comes from braking
while rolling backwards...
