Lowering Spring Issues

So far I've been loving my new lowering springs, but last night as I slowly went over a speed bump I noticed that my car started to make some very dull/hollow sounds from what sounds to be the rear end. Then I noticed they occur on any kind of bumpy/rough road. Is this normal? I checked under the back and everything looks to be connected.

hmm well for starters i'd try to tighten your panhard if possible. Is it the SR panhard by any chance?

Still making a noise, but I think the noise is coming from the back passenger side. Time to go to the dealer lol.

I had my sway bar end links replaced because they were making noise. Maybe that?

I've got it narrowed down to that and maybe the panhard bar isn't fully tightened. Tomorrow I'll find out. I'll be sure to report my results.

Shat, this makes me wonder if I have issues with the panhard bar too. My rear-end has been making noises over bumps

It was the trackbar (panhard bar?) that wasn't tightened down all the way.

This problem has came to haunt me now.. my springs and panhard were installed a little over a week ago. First couple of days i had zero noise, now i hear a noise coming from my right rear, which im assuming is my panhard making the noise. I'm pretty sure it was tightened down with a impact gun, im not too sure why or how it would be loose... So you just tightened it back up and no noise now?

yea. Apparently the right side has a nut on the panhard bar that's extremely hard to tighten, and if not done just right it will shake loose. Who did the install?
