Weak or sagging spring, bad bushing possible bad Nivomat shock if so equipped. Measure right height at the wheel arches. if it is very low on that wheel have someone versed in Volvo look at it and see if it has a Nivomat shock. If the wheel is tilted in either the ride level has dropped on that side caused by something supporting the body like a spring or load leveling shock (nivomat) or a bushing has gone bad allowing the lower arm to move out or the upper arm to move in. Assuming there has been no body damage those are your only choices. Try a shop that does chassis work or a high end front end/suspension shop. Whoever is looking at this is missing something

Our 1996 nissan terrano shakes out of control when going over 80kms on the motorway and its feels like it might tip over but doesnt as we reduced our speed. Do you think it could be the wheel alignment or...


Shakes? Not very specific. It could be a loose wheel, wheel out of balance, the balance weights may have come off one or more wheel rims (check for the marks on the rims inner and outer rim where they used to be).
As 1996 model, it could also be worn out suspension bushes.
If you drive on a straight road, and you change from accelerating, to decelerating, does the car skew (turn left or right slightly), this would indicate worn suspension bushes at the rear, acceleration pushes the rear axle forward, deceleration pulls it back, if there is wear (slop) in the rubber bushes, the changing alignment of the rear axle causes the car to "throttle steer". At cruise, this could potentially set up a sort of harmonic motion, and cause a form of "shaking".

When I back out of my driveway turning the steering wheel left, I hear a clunk or thud that seems to be coming from the right back area as I'm straightening out. I'm concerened that this may be a...


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.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


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.
