    Rear knocking noise

    Hi Folks

    I am new to the Astra after getting rid of my Corsa about 18 Months ago and deciding to go back to VX as the Peugeot I had was a bag of spanners and cost me a small fortune to maintain.

    Anyway Ive bought a nice SXI which has been tastfully modified. The only issue with it is an annoying rummble / rattle / knocking from the rear as if something is loose. Ive had the exhuast checked to see if it was that but it was fine. It seems to be when the car is in motion and on uneven road. Even the slight road inperfection seems to make it happen.

    The car has been lowered and has sports shockers on it although cant read label without popping the car on a ramp.

    Any ideas? much appreciated!
