Weird Clunking Noise

Hey guys, when i am driving i hear a weird clunking noise coming from the back of my car when i go over bumps. I have checked the rear end and all is well there. I spent about an hour and a half underneath it this weekend trying to find somthing loose and couldnt. i banged and wiggled every part i could think of. Any one have this problem or have any idea what it may be??

look for shinny spots on your exhaust, the rear end could be bumping the exhaust pipe when it goes up after rebounding on hitting a speed bump

When the sway bar to frame bushing get old sometimes they get hard and may still be tight but can clunk

Re: Weird Clunking Noise

Check your upper and lower control arm bushings. I had the same problem with mine. Every time I would put it into gear or shift at lower speeds I would hear it. The bushings ended up being all broken apart.

Only over bumps? Definitely sounds suspension related.

Pull your rear wheels off and inspect your suspension with it unloaded for any play or wear and replace accordingly.
