If u look under the car u will see metal rods called strut rods, these have rubber bushings at each end, the rubber bushings are the common source of the noise you have

Metal clunking sound from rear suspension challenger r/t 2010


Sorry dude, it is hard enough trying to keep up with all of the clunks and bumps and squeaks and rattles that occur on vehicles with factory suspension parts. When modifications are made...it is anybody's guess.

All I can tell you is to diagnose the problem the way any auto technician would diagnose any other suspension noise...get it on a lift and perform a thorough inspection and/or have someone bounce the car up and down while you stick your head under it and see if you can tell where the noise is coming from.

When i go down a driveway while truning right, i hear a loud clunk from the right rear side, i also get a sense that something moving along with the clunk. i was thinking springs...98 jimmy sle, 4.3 , 4x4...


For whatever reason, all vehicles of this vintage, tend to have excessive corrosion of the frame and suspension. The first thing that I'd check is the condition of the rear spring shackles. I've seen a number of them simply rust right off the frame. When that happens, the axle to frame can shift when you turn or hit a bump.

Good luck.

I have a knocking sound from rear passenger sidewhenever i go ver bumps and when speeding the car makes a howling sound


Sounds like broken spring, or collapsed suspension strut, or collapsed wheel baring, or broken upper or lower control arm or extremely worn bushes, or all the above. what is it your driving? what sort of bumps? speed bumps? or 4x4ing bumps? or just general bumps in the road?

Klunk noise when crossing abrupt road bumps. Replaced shocks; no help. Have check all suspension hinge joints for wear on rubber blocks or loose bolts - nothing loose or broken there.


i think you should look at your tie rodds or more then likly its you rcv joint know to test if it;s that walk to the wheel (make sure the is straight) and give it a good kick if you hear that noise then you need cv joints hope this helps

You may have to remove the tires but they are very well known for braking the front coil springs.

Hearing clunk noises after going over bumps on the road..


Check the front struts ( shock absorber ) If original or very old, they are doing no good. Also check the front TORSION BAR rubber bushings. In low temps will groan and creak, on up and down motions.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
