Anyone help me here with my PD Bora....

I've replaced front and rear shocks and springs recently, done the rear bushes, front arbs, ball joints and checked the exhaust mounts (car has done 140k and just needed them to get it tight again).

Doing all this cured a few minor noises and creaks, but it has left one. Whenever I go over uneven ground I hear a knocking, not loud - almost like something loose at the back end? I was convinced it was the exhaust as it sounds like something that heavy swinging around bashing into the bottom of the car. But I've checked, been underneath, shaken it about and it doesn't catch anything, it isn't loose or make any noise from inside?

Anyone got a clue where to go next? Bugging the hell out of me!

hmmm interesting, I never did replace them when I did the suspension a year ago - but I looked at them and didn't see any moving parts so assumed they didn't wear? Did I miss something? Is there a bearing in them?
