when passing over a ridge or an imperfection on the road, sometimes I hear clearly a loud blow that seems to come from the rear right. I have removed the wheel and made a visual inspection but everything looks ok. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks

Loose shock bolts. REALLY need to be tight. Need a thin wall socket. we get tons of Healey shocks with the mounting hole ovaled.

Hi Manuel,

Not sure what went on with my car in its previous life but BOTH rear shock mounting plates had broken away from the chassis at some time - and been poorly repaired.

I have spoken to a longtime UK 100 owner who has suffered the same problem in the past, I don't want to appear a doom-monger but it could be more than just loose bolts!

Best of luck in solving the problem.

Tony
