Knocking Sound

Postby KaTaLy5t » Sat Nov 10, 2007 12:30 pm

Hi everyone,

Just got a '98 Altezza in from Japan last week. There's a knocking sound coming from the back when I go round corners at low speed. It only happens
when I accelerate around corners, if I coast round there's no noise. It's especially bad when turning the car around ie. full lock and accelerating. It's says on the spec that there's a TRD uprated LSD on it, I was also told that if there's a 2 way diff on it that it'll make that sound. Any help or advice is much appreciated.

Welcome to the site mate!

Sounds like it's the diff alright, would be quite common with a 2 way & all you can do is put up with it I'm afraid unless you were to swap back to a standard LSD...
