Question about Cars & Trucks

05 Saturn Ion. Left rear noise coming from the wheel area. New shocks and rear axel bushings were replaced. The noise is still there. Only show up when going over slight bumps and under 15 mph. Sounds like something in thumping around in that area. Three place and $600 later still the same problem...

SOURCE: Thumping at front passenger wheel area

if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?

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.

I would get a second opinion to compare physical inspection results. The wheel bearing is most urgent, as are control arm bushings.

Sound can transmit from one end of the car to the other, but the noise was heard in the rear and the balljoints are in the front.

The sway bar and its' bushings can make a noise. You will get body lean on turns with worn components, and some rear drive models have links which can break and detach.

You need to identify the Car Brand and model so the Experts know what you may have for components.

As you may have noticed, I have not said much about shocks. If you have shocks and not struts, there are different priorities. If either is leaking, the priority increases. Some strut towers have a bearing ring and when worn out, can be a safety issue. Shocks fit inside control arms and do not have a bearing ring. Rear suspensions vary, some use control arms on multilink types, others use a rear axle with springs.

But get the wheel bearing fixed. Have tierod ends checked. The guy under the car will have a better idea of its physical condition than what we can tell online.

Itt can be related to the SHOCK ABSORBERS or the support bushes . Check if the chassis has any damage on the frame which make this noise heard.
when the car is in action the noise is heard and not on running . so it seems to be a suspension issue and you must jack up the rear and have a close observation before the unit can be taken out. Hold your hand around the shock and a DRY piston noise will be felt on your hand when the shocks works. Take precaution to do this test.
