Banging Sound from Rear of 2001 Explorer

There is a `banging' sound that comes from the rear passenger side of my 2001 Explorer. It sounds like metal banging and it gets a lot (I mean alot) worse when going over rough roads! I have changed the brakes, shocks etc on the rear and it hasn't improved at all. I even had someone replace the rods for the rear window; and then took off the interior of the rear door and nothing. I do notice that when I am going down the freeway, the truck will `sway' a bit back and forth when I encounter rough roads. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Check the U-joints this will give you a thumping sound by running
out of round. Banging on bottom of car.
The noise in the rear could be a bad wheel bearing, I had that
happen when the race of the bearing came apart.

Sounds like you may be having an air conditioning compressor mechanical failure. I would suggest seeing a mechanic soon before it locks up the belt if the bearings fail in it.

Banging noise from rear of bmw 316 e36


It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.
