I've noticed a rattle from the rear of my Seven when driving along (had the doors off which makes it stand out a bit more), seems to be related to slightly bumpy straight roads. With the back on axle stands (on chassis not de Dion) there's a few mm of free play on the rear arb and I can get a rattle from the drop links when jiggling the arb. This seems to tie in to the noise occurring on straights rather than when the links are under load.
I'm pretty sure there's always been play in the links - anyone else had this issue with the rear arb causing a rattle?
How much play and rattle is normal?
I guess easiest way to test and stop the rattle is to disconnect the rarb but it may be that new links are needed anyway. I just don't want to change them and find that they all wobble a bit.
