Looking for a Delta Link Repair DIY?
As I’ve mentioned before, I have had a persistent “clunk” in my rear suspension and a “wandering” sensation at highway speeds.
I tried the fender washer in the shock mount repair which yielded no change in the sound and then, just to make sure on the easy stuff, I ordered some new shock mounts from FCP Groton. I replaced them and still no change in the clunk.
A couple of weeks ago I decided that a Chief’s halftime Sunday project was to find out what the problem was. As soon as I jacked up the car it was apparent, I had over 1 inch (2.5 cm) of vertical travel in my rear trailing arm end links. The right side was the worst as I could actually see the ball joint that should have been immersed in rubber.
