Default rear end noise is this normal

last year I installed maxium motosports low control arms and soon after i would hear a clunk when letting out of the clutch to hard going through the gears and would hear some chatter when going around slow tight turns in the parking lot and i just figured it was the solid bushing at one end of those control arms.

fast forward to this year I intalled MM's panhard bar and torque arm and the sound has gotten louder.

Brand new transmission mount
u-joints are in good shape no play
rear end was built last year with 4.10 gears with all new bearings

Here is a video i took of me grabbing one tire and snapping it forward in one direction then pulling it back and to me it sounds exactly like what Im hearing going down the road



Is this normal^

Also note the spot on my back wheel in the beginning of the vid, looks like brake fluid but can't find were its leaking.

Sounds like normal NVH increase for a control arm with a spherical bushing, and upgraded rear suspension like you are doing. Also just to rule it out check out the exhaust make sure its not clunking something.

Deffinatly not the exhaust its tight as could be. I figured as much with the spherical bushings just didn't know if the sound from the rear end was normal or not its just really annoying. Love the way the car handles, hate how loud everything is, dash and sounds like its going to fall out at times, my cobra brake calipers make a racket and my rear view mirror falls off constantly.

It would so nice to have a car that handles great and doesn't affect nvh so much.

If you wanna play suspension wise you gotta pay, as in increased NVH.
