Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corsica
The best way to find out what it is would be to have the 3 people in the car while gently pushing down on the car simulating a pot hole or bump and inspecting how the exhaust & shocks in that area where you hear the noise, are fitting. It sounds as if when the weight of the extra passengers is in the vehicle, probably your exhaust pipe/muffler/tailpipe is now closer than usual to another body part & when you hit bumps or pot holes, the extra force caused makes it bump or rub.
Generaly there should always be 1" of exhaust clearance from other parts. There could also be a problem with the shock/strut when the extra weight is placed on it. The noise should actually point you in the best direction & you should look for shiny spots on metal, pipes or things that appear to be capable of rubbing. Sometimes, the muffler /exhaust will lose one or more of the rubber O-rings it is supported by and that allows it to swing & bump making noise. Good luck.
