Ride: EFII Fairmont

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

I have a new noise that started tonight. My EF Fairmont is falling apart now at 194,000.

In the last month I've had:

- Blown radiator
- Head gasket has a small leak
- Power steering on the way out

Now this new noise.

When the rear wheel is loaded a bit going over a small bump, I hear a sound that can be best described as something which is wound up, and is then released which makes an unwinding sound which ends in a very faint knock. I can't imagine what could be causing a sound like that.

The shocks and springs are original, done the same amount of k's.

Any ideas?

Shock mounts are a very common thing and can send a good thud or rattle through the vehicle have had a few cars with them go
