I AM PLANNING TO HAVE THE WHOLE SUSPENSION OF MY 94 540IA CHECKED. I AM HEARING A KLONK NOISE FROM THE REAR END ON POTHOLES. MY CAR HAS 96000 KM (59500 MILES) ON ITS COUNTER AND I DON'T KNOW WHEN AND IF ITS PRIVEOUS OWNER HAD THE SUSPENSION CHECKED. WHAT PARTS SHOULD I EXPECT TO BE FAILING.
Well, now that I've been a smarta$$, here's my suggestion:
Check shock mounting, rear subframe bushings, sway bar bushings and links, exhaust hangers, wheel bearings, jack loose in the trunk, etc. Lots of things can make a clunk in the trunk.
'95 525ia, rattle in rear when closing the door, driving me crazy; wife has never noticed it!
