    p38 passed it's MoT yesterday - yay!!! Has been off the road far too long.

    Sadly seems to have a clonk from the rear. I "think" it was there previously, but is much more prevalent now. Not exactly sure what is causing it. Need to crawl under and have a look. Trying researching online, but my word nowhere seems to agree the suspension layout on a p38. Some places have diagrams showing a rear A-frame :rolleyes: And some show a panhard rod front and rear, others only at the front.

    I think it uses a panhard at the rear from when I was under it last. So plan on changing the bushes, anyone know for sure.

    e.g.

    They can't all be right... :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Panhard rod front and rear plus leading links front and trailing links rear. If it's a drive line clonk, check the UJ's. Otherwise it could be a shock absorber as it got worse after the MOT.

    If the clonk is going from forward to reverse (or reverse to forward) as the slack in drivetrain is taken up and more of a click than a clonk it might be the rear shafts need gluing where they go through the hub. You need that green Loctite.

    Otherwise I am with data on the UJs.

    It is most noticeable going over speed humps. Even very slowly. Most when going up rather than down. And it’s when the rear wheels hit the ramp/hump.

    Shocks looked ok when I fitted the springs. But they are on my hit list. Was going to do rear panhard. Then rear trailing arm chassis bush. And then look at shocks if it’s not solved it. Don’t think it is the prop/UJ’s but will have a look at them too.

    That does sound like a bush. Have you got yours on springs?

    Yes only just converted to coils. Hadn't driven on the road until 2 days ago. Need to have a crawl under tomorrow and see if I can sport what it is. Don't think it is anything too nasty (fingers crossed!!!)

    So as my 4.6 is back on the road and I had found a new app in the App Store I thought I'd give it a try out.

    No idea if this is good or bad though, nothing to compare it too :rolleyes:

    I'd be looking at the drop links. Cheap to replace to

    Pulled the EAS delay relay to try and see which corner is dropping. It's on bump stops each morning and nothing coming out of the exhaust port as per Wammers' thumb test. I'm assuming one corner is leaking and it uses all the air trying to adjust over night.

    It doesn't use air to drop, the tank should remain full. It does of course attempt the remain level if one corner drops by exhausting air.
