Something is going on with my rear suspension, making a clunk noise when roll forward/backward and stop. The BMW tech from Peake told me that they think it has to do with the suspension and def. not tranny related. I just don't have the tool to work on it at the moment.

It's ridiculously hard to find ANY local shop that's aftermarket-market parts friendly, that's why I am moving the fuck out of here ASAP......

PEAKE isnt aftermarket friendly? I would think that a bmw dealership would have the best expertise.

No, it makes the noise once after that one brake. The noise won't come back after the first brake.

hmm thats an odd problem. You think it has something to do with the after market suspension? What if you put the stock setup back on and see what happened.
