Gday guys, as topic suggests I've got a clunk in the rear of my LTD. Its the all the time over every little bump, even if i just push on the back of the car you can hear it. it's coming from the left hand side and i've got no idea what it is? Springs and shocks are only 4000k's old, lovells springs and koni reds. Any ideas what it may be?

Check your sway bar bushes where they mount onto the diff. Mine did the same thing just this weekend on a cruise. Cost $16.00 for replacement bush kit and will take you approx 1/2 hr to change both. You can get them from supacheap auto. Superpro Suspension Components Polyurethane Bushings. Part No. SPF1451-_ _ K. The "_ _" refers to the sway bar diameter eg, 22 or 24. Hope this helps. :D
