Rear suspension video

I needed to find out what was knocking underneath my car so I made a video of me driving on a gravel road. After watching it I found being able to see the suspension work is really cool so I posted it to youtube and I'm adding it here.

That's awesome. Always cool to see suspension videos.

But next time give it some gas!

I know it's nothing earth shattering or anything. Considering the mk 1 rear suspension was rather innovative for its time a visual of it could interest people.

I liked it. But then again, I'm big into trucks and offroading so I love to see suspension in action.

I think it's neat.


So did you decide that it's the exhaust making noise?

Yep, that was what was making the main noise. The quieter rattles were just tools in the spare tire area. Once school is out I'm going to try and replace the whole exhaust b/c it has a big leak right after the cat and is rusty everywhere. Maybe add an SVT header while I'm at it.
