mate i had a broken rear spring on my daily vectra it clunked as it moved away from it's position... so by you setting it in the right position you've eliminated the movement it had and thus solved the problem.
check if the spring is seated right first, if you've used coilovers, check if the springs are locked properly also check if the top bearing and bushes sit right ( and are build up the right way, you won't be the first that put it on wrong on one side) also check if the droplink is actually tightened down properly as they can be very loud if there is any movement on the bolts that should secure it. also check balljoint, track rod end connection to the hub, and the front wishbone bolt and bush for movement ( the rear is usually fine)
So I've been working on the old girl this week. She now has new handbrake cables and new discs and pads on the rear, plus a new caliper on the passenger rear.
Not quite all back together yet because it was dark when I finally removed the crush washer from the banjo bolt, so it's bolted on the new caliper but still weeping. Hoping it'll nip up a bit tighter once it's all bolted together on the carrier.
The missus has poo pooed a car and to be fair to her, she's right. So Dixie the Golf is staying for now. And has a new clutch, dmf, suspension and braking system to help her stay on the road
Friends, my VW Bora 2.8L V6 4Motion journey started in 2001 with all black Bora as my only car. By 2014 it was unreliable, I had limited time and know how, so I got rid of it for a new WRX.
By 2019 I was a bit sentimental and found a Blue 2003 V6 Bora with cream interior. 240k km on clock...
