Look at it this way, put your fist in your palm. It should be a perfect fit. When it gets loose its because it lost its grease and had worn away medal. It will cause friction which in turn will create heat which could lead to a dagerous conditon not to mention its not holding the tire strait which can destroy a tire. It may last for awhile but I have seen the outcome when it decides to break. Gets expensive

Humming noise at 80kph at rear, would worn spring bushes cause this

unlikely--- humming noise is from a vibration caused by failing drive line joints , bearing failures, out of balance drive shafts , failing rear engine mounts, worn slip joints, worn output shaft bush in the transmission housing
it can also be from bad tyres or tyres with a regular tyre pattern in the tread
To understand this you have to closely inspect the tread pattern of tyres and you will see that the pattern is not consistent around the tyre as that consistency is what gives a noise ( example is the old bar tread tyre and the road hum that was produced on hard surface roads)

My 2012 Chevy Silverado 4.3 liter 2wd drive has a clunk in the rear end and a rough idle no check engine light on

Hi Josh:
Sounds like you're dealing with 2 separate problems.
It's possible that the clunk in the rear end could be driveshaft universal, incorrect gear alignment in differential, or worn/loose suspension linkage bushings. It's a matter of checking all components to find the problem. WORK SAFE. Work with the vehicle on a hoist or on jack stands.
ROUGH IDLE? Check spark plugs. Try adding some carb/injector cleaner to the gas and going for a drive. (After you've found the clunk.

Super stiff left rear suspension

If there is no noise when driving the car over a flat bump-free surface, it tends to suggest that the problem may well lie in the shock absorber or spring .. or .. as someone else has pointed out .. the bushes. A worn rubber bush permits metal to etal contact - the tapping noise .. and can also cause vibration.

Pushing down on the corner of your car should feel stiff as you are pushing against the shock absorber. If the spring is broken your car well make a heavy 'crashing noise' over each bump. Though any rubberised bush that is worn can also cause the same sound when driven over a bump.

If the car makes that tapping noise even when driven over an even surface it cold point to bearing troubles. However, as you say that it is bone jarring when up to speed suggests the problem lies in either a loose wheel nut, an out of balance or damaged wheel rim or worn rubber bush - or something worn that allows metal to metal contact.

The easiest solution - and the cheapest - is to take your car to a workshop. They will tell you within minutes what the problem is. If you try and replace parts yourself to cure the problem .. well .. usually we replace the wrong part and end up paying more for parts before we find the problem. The other point to bear in mind is that it isn't always easy to identify something like a worn rubber bush when the car is standing on the ground. It's easier when it has it has the weight lifted from its wheels - on a hoist.

Get your car to a workshop and let them identify the fault. You can change the worn parts yourself

Is it safe to drive a buick rendezvous with a worn rear suspension knuckle?

"safe" is when everything is in good condition...Temporary use on short trips at low speed with slight wear is relatively safe, but it's a judgment call that needs to be made, based upon amount of wear. Best option always is to get it repaired.
