I heard something snap and then noticed that the rear of the car drives very bumpy


Can you provide more info? Did you hit a bump? What do you mean by 'drives bumpy?' Does it ride rough, or does it go up and down a lot after you hit a bump, or something else? Can you further describe the snap you heard, and what was going on when you heard it and immediately afterward (e.g., driving 40 mph on a paved road, hit a pot hole, heard a loud 'breaking' sound as if something snapped/broke, and the ride of the car seemed to immediately change to being more harsh/rough)? Have you had any work done recently, such as tires changed or rotated, struts replaced, wheel alignment, or brakes replaced? Did anything else change (e.g., now when you hit a bump, you hear a new noise in the rear)? Were you carrying anything heavy in the trunk or back seat? I had a '99 Corolla for several years, and had zero problems other than a worn out driver's door handle and a couple of cracked windshields. Great car choice!

BMW 2003 330Xi. LOUD intermittent popping/thumping noise from deck beyond rear seats where speakers are located. Occurs even when sound system is OFF. Nothing visible from the trunk.


Is it associated with accelerating/decelerating, or bumps?
The earlier e46s were a bit prone to breaking the tops out of their shock towers and for cracking around the connection points where the differential carrier mounts attach to the body. This is usually the result of drifting or other rough use, but I imagine that a nasty pot hole could cause it as well.

Cheap and easy fix, just replace the rubber bushings under the back where the sway bar is held to the chassis. The rubber gets worn and hard and allows the bar to rattle when going over bumps.

If it is a continuous thump (ie thump, thump, thump) that changes in speed with the speed of the vehicle it is likely related to a tire problem.

If it happens when you hit a bump or immediately afterwards it is likely due to something loose or worn out in the suspension.

If it happens somewhat randomly and doesn't seem affected by bumps it may be a loose piece of trim, or something loose under the car getting knocked around by the winds.

Rear end thumping noise


Depending on the year of your gto it could be a buggered CV joint on one of your back wheels. All GTO/3000GT are four wheel drive but up to the mid to late 90's they had four wheel steering. The usual symptoms of a buggered CV joint are loud rattling and/or vibrating from the affected wheel at around 30 - 40 mph and often a loud clunk when cornering at low speed
