Elantra 1.6 1997 Rear suspension noise

After every hard right or left turn I hear a loud thump coming from the rear suspension. It sounds like a spring popping after its been compressed. I had the shocks replaced 12 months ago. Please help.

Rear thumping noise


probably shocks have someone bounce to get noise going and put your hands on suspension parts you should feel the bump as well this will narrow down

Rear thumping


John,
i have the exact same problem in my 2010 Veracruz. Had it to the dealer 5 times. They say they can't "duplicate" the sound. They say they check the suspension and all is ok. I leave the dealership and the next day I hear the thumping. I also notice that on a snow covered road, the car is very hard to hang on to. Seems like when you go down the road, the rear end wants to kick out to the right. Personally, I think there is something wrong with the drivetrain. Possible an issue with the AWD trying to kick in the right rear wheel. Wheel Speed Sensor?? Who knows?? I'm really frustrated. The dealer is useless.

Hello. I hear a very loud thumping noise from the back of my 2014 Toyota Corolla as I slow down. I have taken it twice to the service station at the dealer and they hear the noise but cannot identify where...


Here are the only reason that can cause a thumping noise
  1. Wheel and Tire Problems
    • Wheels can become bent from striking objects, and tires can develop bulges from broken belts or wear. Both problems may cause a thumping noise. Thumping sounds caused by wheel and tire problems will typically increase in frequency at higher speeds, though the sound may not be heard at lower speeds. These problems can often be spotted by visual inspection.
    Suspension Problems
    • Worn or broken struts or strut mounts can create a thumping noise, especially when the vehicle hits a bump in the roadway. To test struts, bounce the rear of the car by forcefully pushing down on it and letting go. After letting go, the car should settle back to its original position without bouncing or noise.
    Loose Trim
    • Loose trim pieces near or in the wheel well can flutter in the wind while a car is being driven. These trim pieces may create a thumping noise as they strike other objects. A car owner can check trim pieces for looseness to determine if that is the source of the noise.
Hope this helps

no
it indicates that the problem noise is coming from a failing suspension mount and rubber or failing wheel bearings
Take it to an accredited suspension shop that can check/replace the bearings and any failed suspension parts then do the wheel alignment on the rear end first then the front end

Sounds like it might be a damaged rear end. Chock the wheels or put rear differential on jack stands and put vehicle in neutral then by hand turn the drive line back and forth and see if there is any loud noise when u do. There should not be a lot of play. if on jack stand you can also turn one of the rear wheels and see if there is any load noises or excessive play
