Question about Cars & Trucks
We thought it was the exhaust that's fine. we have changed both uni joint as they were shot but noise still remains wont do it all the time but common on tiny bumps mostly off acceleration.sound seems to be coming from drivers rear tyre area
Check wheel nuts. also if vehicle has wheel trims try removing them and test. also does the vehicle have independent rear suspension?

sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots

There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.

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.

its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.
