If this vehicle is equipped with rear struts....not shock absorbers...which most vehicles are equipped with today the sound you are speaking of seems to indicate worn strut plates and bushings... most repair facilities over look these items when replacing the strut housings and thus customer gets this noise even louder now that the struts are new and the plates and bushings are old not able to absorb the shock the vehicles suspension incurrs whuile riding over a bumpy terrain.

The 2007 Uplander does have rear shocks, not the cause of your problem replace rear axle bushings GM part #15829134 where trailing arm mounts to frame. This will solve problem on FWD uplander

While is my 2007 chevy uplander rear end so noisy?


Could be the exhaust system hitting the frame or body of vehicle when you hit a bump. There should be some wear marks where the pipe is hitting.

When talking off at full gas....there is a slamming noise coming from the rear end of the car...also happens when i have have people riding in the back of the car and i hit bumps...is it bad shocks or...


Could be blown shocks, bad bushings, missing bump stops, damaged exhaust, broken exhaust hanger. The exhaust goes over the axle, if it's hanging low the axle could hit it over a large bump or when weight is in the rear. No telling until you crawl under it and take a good look at everything. How many miles are on it?

2003 Z71 when driving on the hihway and hitting a bump it feels like I'm going to loose control of the truck the back end is so loose. Shocks?


Shocks or broken leaf spring. Look under the back end at the springs, and see if there are any breaks, and examine the bolts to make sure none are loose or broken. If not, your problem will be from the shocks. If you push down on your truck, does it bounce a couple of times? Do the wheels hop when you hit bumps? If so, you'll need to invest in some shocks.

When i am driving over a rough terrain or i hit a bump the back end sways and swerves even when i slow down prior to hitting a bump or going over a bumpy road what causes this problem


Could be your shocks are no good and need replaced or if you have rear springs check to make sure there are no broken leaves in the springs.

If it's making a clunk noise when hitting bumps, check the mounting plates and bushings that hold the rear end to the frame. GM made these plates out of aluminum and the bolts that go through the plate and the bushings rot out and the rear end slams against the frame.

1997 dodge neon/smelling antifreeze through me vents when i turn,also i have another thing wrong when i hit bumps sometimes the rear end of the car jutters and wants to swing a bit to the left,could it be...


Sounds like a snapped or broken spring, you need to get them checked asap as could be dangerous.
As for antifreeze, are you sure you havent put screenwash in recently as this can smell very strongly of Alcohol.
