    Reversing Knock

    G'day guys...
    What causes the front driver side suspension to "knock" and "clunk" on a 505 sedan when you use the brake in reverse? I have recently had to replace several bushes in the suspension with new rubbers, and this has not really helped.
    So what can i do to make it stop clinking for the roadworthy guys?
    Thank all,

    How is your brake hardware? Check over the calipers, pads, and the associated hardware and make sure they are all secure.

    Are the upper strut mounts in good shape? How about the rear crossmember bushings?

    Loose pads, perhaps? Or the caliper mounting bolts undone?

    My two oh used to do that.
    Turned out to be the pads moving that fraction bit in the caliper as Ray suggest. It'll do it once in the forward direction after you go the reverse.
    Small piece of tyre tube on each end of the pad could be the go but then there are the safety issues ie would it stay put?

    Thanks guys. I think it must be the brakepads slipping

    Nice Work...

    Try some of that orange gunk that is intended to reduce brake squeal etc when applied to the back of the pads. Should stop them moving and/or dampen any noise.

    Cheers
