Hello All,

My Mother inlaw's car has a bit of a rattle when driving, doing the good son inlaw bit I have traced it to the back shock on the left hand side. Some thing appears to be loose either in the housing or the bolts that attach the shock.

I was trying to see if there was a explored view or manual that would show how best to get at the shock. I only had a quick look and my guess is that the in side back panel will need to come out but if any one has any pointers or a manual or drawing that might show how to get in to this area it would be great help.

I never did one, but I don't think there's anything fancy about it. It's just a standard old timey shock arrangement. Just take the back wheel off should be enough. Mother Inlaw's car huh... what a nice guy.

If driving straight, take and rock the steering wheel quick and hard to efect a nice body rock.... does it knock/clunck ??

The old style sway bar bushings not hold up to the load, so they changed them in 2002 I think it was.. Lok at the brackets for the sway bar bushing -- 2 of them -- if the bracket is flat stamping, that is the old style... the new style has a double ribbed bracket with bushing to match (added material)..
