2003 SSei- Quality of new parts
I try to buy decent quality stuff when doing maintenance on the Bonny..
Bought a highend set of Bridgestone tires - they have had the 60 mph bounce since day 1.. Balance by 2 different shops on 4 occassions.
Bought Bendix ceramic brake pads with new Raybestos rotors.. One of the Raybestos rotors is warped, the Bendix pads squeal (backplate lube didn't help) and they click when you change directions in the car.. Failure #2..
Just bought Monroe MA822 rear shocks... 1 hour job max to install.. right.. I now have 3-4 hours tied up.. One of the shocks makes a bumping noise when bouncing the car, and rattles on washboard roads.. Replaced the mounts with Moog shock mounts and it made no difference, even tried tightening the top bolt and much as you can. Remove the shock, sound goes away.... I am at a total loss..
My question- This rattle and bumping noise on the one shock, can the shock be broken internally?
