Whats "SOLID ON FIXINGS IT BANGS ON THE CURVED BIT AFTER THE BACK BOX " mean???..............replacing the rear shocks should NOT have affected the rest of the car, unless something wasnt installed properly.

Yes its old shocks,the purpose of the shock is to slow down and control the rapid movement of the spring . The purpose of the spring is to control your ride height.

How to access the rear shocks topside? banging noise going over small bumps, sounds like something may be loose.


HI,
Check the exhaust mounts first in the rear these maybe broken.
The tops of the shocks are accessed through the trunk area.
Thanks

Engine banging going over pot holes ive changed the wishbones and suspention struts and it still bangs


by bang do you mean bang into the ground? if so you may need new shocks and or springs.
if you mean it bangs inside the engine compartment then you may want to inspect the motor mounts / stabilizer.

Hi,
you need to open the rear hatch and pull carpet away from where the top of the shocks are,I've seen four of these cars where the body rust away where the shocks are.and the shocks just come thru the back body,they had to be junked.

LOUD CLANGING NOISE


also check all your suspension bushings make sure they are all good. spare tire holder maybe? make sure none of the rear leaf springs are broken. also make sure all the bolts holding the bed down properly. make sure it isnt your tailgate either... could pretty much be anything. just make sure you bushings are good and everything is tight.
