You maybe be due for new shocks and struts due to the age of the vehicle.thats why it would sound like it does and ride rough.

That clunking noise you get it whilst you are braking or just as you are coming. If it is whilst on breaking,check your rear brakes. if is whilst coming check for any suspension shocks,bushes.

Rear suspension clunks diagonosis


check that the exhaust system is fitted correctly and all the rubber straps are in good condition. Check for loose shock absorber mounting rubbers. Have the rear suspension checked out for broken/ failed suspension point rubbers.

Shock suspension


Could be the exhaust system hitting on something when the suspension moves. Inspect under the car and look for shiny spots that are making contact.

Our 2003 kia spectra has a metalic rattle when you drive over uneven pavement or speed bumps. we ckeck suspension brakes wheel bearings shocks exshaust what is it


The heat shields that are positioned between the exhaust pipe and floorboard or between the exhaust pipe and sensitive electrical components are made of very cheap, thin, tin-like metal. When they rust on one side, one of the tabs comes loose and the whole shield will vibrate especially when accelerating. Since you are getting the noise when you hit a bump, you might check the area where you stow the spare tire (loose tools may be vibrating against the metal). Also the plastic protective pieces behind front bumper sometimes tear and will "flap' against the car and sound like a metallic vibration when you hit a bump especially if you were stuck in snow recently. Look for loose plastic pieces.

Klunk noise when crossing abrupt road bumps. Replaced shocks; no help. Have check all suspension hinge joints for wear on rubber blocks or loose bolts - nothing loose or broken there.


i think you should look at your tie rodds or more then likly its you rcv joint know to test if it;s that walk to the wheel (make sure the is straight) and give it a good kick if you hear that noise then you need cv joints hope this helps

brake calipers could be loose on suspension---lower track control arms---inner bushes lower track control arms---anti roll bar bushes----shock absorber broke inside----top shock absorber mounting loose--- jack it up and put a big bar on it and see what moves
