My lowered ef sedan has a constant rattle comin fom the back end although it drives straight,the trailing arm rubbers look f-ked, is this the noisey bugger of a problem?

that and possibly your sway bar bushes, possibly your watts linkage bush, could also be a suspension bush, either top or bottom of the strut... oh wait thats pretty much every bush in the rear or a falcon.

I would honestly be looking at the suspension bushes first, then going from there, you could go a complete nolathane rear bush kit, but by the time you buy and pay someone to install it... it adds up.

The full kit front and rear is $6-700 from ebay. Not sure if you can get rear only. I know the front only is about $350.

While expensive, apparently it makes it feel practically brand new. Haven't had it done myself...
