      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Yes I did mean that :) The wheels do spin freely and I can't hear anything. The bushes still exist they are just very soft/loose but maybe a bit of metal on metal contact with the anti roll bar link. I will jack the back end up again and have another look. Cheers
  2. Hi Folks, I have a 1998 V6 Ghia that is making a rumbling noise from the rear when cornering. I suspected its a wheel bearing on its way out so had a look and can detect any play in the bearings and they look ok and are tight. I did notice that the bushes at the hub end of the trailing arms have a lot of play and the antiroll bar link bushes are perished. Anyone know if its probably a wheel bearing or could the bushes cause the noise? Just been to the local car parts store and they are quoting $478+tax for a bearing so I will be looking at getting something online as even with international shipping it should be cheaper. Just want to make sure before I spend $200+ on a bearing. Is it a big job swapping a bearing/hub on a Mondeo with disks at the rear? Cheers
