Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.

It could possibly be a shock or strut bracket.

NO PUN INTENDED. If u are asking about "if its a shock absorber" I professionally advise u not to tackle the repair. It may not even be a shock we're referring to.

When to change suspension springs chevrolet venture


if the vehicle is sagging or bottoming out on bumps and potholes it's time to replace springs. if vehicle bounces and has excessive sway then the shocks (struts) are bad.

I'm hearing a loud ''cranking'' noise from the back of my 1996 jeep cherokee mostly when making turns or hitting potholes/bumps-could it be shocks/bushings?


If shocks are bad, the links on the swaybar will hit the body on bumps. Check everything...you can see it...I can't!

Loud noise/bang from the back of the car when going over bumps


You more than likely have one of two problems. One of your shock absorbers has a broken attachment bracket or 2) You have a broken exhaust bracket to your muffler. To check the shock just have the vehicle on a flat area motor turned off with emergency brake on and go to each side and "bounce" the vehicle using your body weight. Then to check the exhaust do this when motor is completely cool motor off emergency brake on and chock the tires so there is no chance the vehicle will roll. Get under the rear and attempt to move the exhaust assembly. If it moves to any degree side to side etc then it is this. If the vehicle bounces excessively when you bounce on it then it is the shock - repair accordingly. Hope this helps.

Rear shock bang


Check this link, but be real careful if your just changing strut assy, as it can really take off if spring not compressed securely.(very dangerous if not experienced with tool for compressing.) My advice is if your going to change it, buy the assy complete with new upper mount, and spring already assembled, and don't just buy 1 side, do both now for better stability & handling, much safer & always recommended to replace in pairs.
