What is the clunking noise coming from the rear passenger side by the strut?


well, don't know what kind of car you have, but the likeliest candidate is the sway bar end link. They make quite a racket when they are bad. Even on small bumps. it could also be the sway bar bushing too, if it's a bushing it'll be more on larger bumps. if it's a link, it'll be more rattly sounding on smaller bumps.

The front[or rear] sway bars have links in them that are rubber mounted,it sounds like one of the sway bar links is broken,or one of the sway bar bushings is missing.Find the sway bar and have a close look at the mounts to see if the problem lies here.

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.

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.

This is either caused by a wore out strut/shock in the rear of the car or a broken spring.
