Hi, I have a knocking on the rear passenger side. I replaced the subframe bushes with powerflex bushes last year so is probably not them. I have just removed the suspension unit and the top plate looks fine. The only thing I could see was that the shock absorber was leaking therefore knackered would this give me the knocking. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

its difficult to say from the photo, you need some kind of bar to lever and check for play.
