Rear Suspension Diving Me Nutz!!!!!

My 92 Lude has some kind of a clunking sound coming from the rear suspension when compressing. If it is a sharp jolt, fast or slow it does it. I have replaced the shocks, strut caps, and checked all the bushings in the rear. Does anyone know of this being a TSB or anything? I was wondering if anyone else had ever heard of this problem.

Common 4th and 5th gen. Prelude Problem, only happens when it is cold.
It is called Shock Knock. Has something to do with the shock collars which are too long.
also check if your rear sway bar is not loose by jiggling it up and down if it is lose you need to replace the end-link bushings.

For end links, I recommend Import Replacement Parts. I contacted them on AIM since they didn't have any end links on their site, but the guy linked to the end links...and i ordered, and got them in about a week. I think they were about 45 bones each. The dude I talked to was a fellow Luder, so it worked out.

Here's the AIM SN - ImportRP
