Question about 2008 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

I have a noise coming from around the right rear tire area. At first it sounded like something rattling around in the trunk when I hit a bump but I took everything out of the trunk and it still does it. Could there be something wrong with the tire or something in the shocks that could make that noise? I was told the 2008 has a history of strut problems and an alignment problem also so I am just really concerned as to what is really going on with my car. I just had new tires put on the front and the ones that were on the front are now on the back. This is when the noise started when the switch was made. Any ideas as to what could be going on?

Yes it could be a faulty strut, but it sounds more like a wheel bearing.i would probably get it checked by a professional.

    I had the same rear end clunking noise on my 08 Impala. I checked the rear sway bar and found a clunk in the sway bar links (2) I disconnected the links and took it for a test drive and it got rid of the noise. You can buy replacement links at the dealer or on-line. They cost about $35 each but I chose to remove them permanently and disconnect the sway bar permanently.

Loud noise


Check your exhaust and rear suspension for something loose or broken. Problem could be the exhaust, a hanger or cracked pipe. In the suspension it could be shocks, worn bushings, track arms etc. When a problem like this happens you have to get under the car and grab and try to move things checking for loosness. In general try to see what is loose enough that a bump causes it to rattle or bang. Other than inspecting the rear area there is no short cut that can be taken to solve the problem. You don't want to just start replacing parts hoping to fix the problem, that can be expxnsive and unnecessary. Good Luck!!!
