I am actually now reconsidering or rethinking my theory about the coil springs, as the sound was defnately always coning from the left, but today i heard it on the right.
So i am starting to think that it might be bushes....

P.S. Nmad, the Patrol pickup got rear leaf springs.

Ek dink daaraan om my bakkie volgende jaar te vat, om al die bushes ens na te gaan. Behalwe radius arm bushes, is daar enige ander bushes wat mens moet na gaan? bv panhard bushes?

Indien ek die suspensie later wil upgrade, sal dit geld mors wees om nou al die bushes te vervang met nissan oem bushes? Of word al die bushes in elk geval nie deur 'n suspension upgrade vervang nie?

Fanus
Jy kan al die busher ruil behalwe die radius arm bushes waar dit aan die diff vas maak sonder dat dit jou suspension upgrade gaan beinvloed. Dis net daai caster correction bushes wat jy gaan moet verander na n suspension lift.
