View Full Version : rear clunk from the back....ahh! I hate it

08-22-2002, 01:55 AM
I have had this clunk since I bought the car. It is so damn annoying. It comes from the rear left. I think it might be the shock but it does it on both Auto and Firm so I'm not sure. Does it all the time, over harsh bumps and even little ones. Anyone else have a clunking in back? Way to solve this? Thanks

does it do it going in and out of gear it kind of sounds like the irs bushings are bad.

does it all the time, regardless if it is changing gears...

Are the bushings hard to replace?

Had a exhaust mount break and the rear exhaust was bumping
up on the frame. shake your exhaust around and see if it clunks.

I had the same trouble with my vehicle last week it ended up being a bad sway bar link. It cost $30.00 to replace.

Could be a stabilizer link. They seem to seat themselves back in place after a couple of bumps, and sometimes it's hard to tell if it's broken. A sure way to tell is if the rubber bushing is missing.
