Likely,
If you have eliminated the obvious causes such as loose things in the trunk (sorry but I have had similar complains where there was something loose in the trunk)
It may be the strut top on the problem side.

My 1998 astrovan is very loud driving over bumps, potholes, and road imperfections. 4 "brand new" used tires but still haven't gotten an alignment. Air pressure is all the same.


are you talking road noise from the tyres
or exhaust or suspension noises

used tyres matching for noise ...
depends on tread pattern and how much thread
what year they were made

tyre pressure ...sure check all are to spec

pre inspection before any wheel alignment
should will be checking the suspension condition

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me


I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

Rear suspension klunk. just replaced coil springs. clunk heard when hitting bump in road at any speed

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?

Impala rear suspension problem


Could one shock be bad? Causing a difference in bounce return rate? I would crawl under suspended car and check all suspension bolts. Are your bushings in good shape? If one is chewed up or missing then this would cause that misalignement. What kind of suspension do you have? Solid axle or independent susp? I don't know if your car is front or rear wheel drive. I'm guessing front wheel drive.

My 1995 continental has severe ride problems bounces on every bump in the road front end sits low and rear seems normal


Sounds like the front "air ride suspension" is out.
That works off rubber bags built into the springs. If one or both has developed a leak/hile, it lets the front end (or rear or both) drop to ride on the bottom of the suspension.
Get the wallet out. It's expensive.
Sorry :-(

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.

2001 Ford Taurus rear end bounces/slips off to side slightly


This is most likly a low RR tire. Check the tire pressure first. If that is OK, I would slowly drive to somone qualified to examine the rear suspention to see what might have broken.
good luck
