Super stiff left rear suspension

If there is no noise when driving the car over a flat bump-free surface, it tends to suggest that the problem may well lie in the shock absorber or spring .. or .. as someone else has pointed out .. the bushes. A worn rubber bush permits metal to etal contact - the tapping noise .. and can also cause vibration.

Pushing down on the corner of your car should feel stiff as you are pushing against the shock absorber. If the spring is broken your car well make a heavy 'crashing noise' over each bump. Though any rubberised bush that is worn can also cause the same sound when driven over a bump.

If the car makes that tapping noise even when driven over an even surface it cold point to bearing troubles. However, as you say that it is bone jarring when up to speed suggests the problem lies in either a loose wheel nut, an out of balance or damaged wheel rim or worn rubber bush - or something worn that allows metal to metal contact.

The easiest solution - and the cheapest - is to take your car to a workshop. They will tell you within minutes what the problem is. If you try and replace parts yourself to cure the problem .. well .. usually we replace the wrong part and end up paying more for parts before we find the problem. The other point to bear in mind is that it isn't always easy to identify something like a worn rubber bush when the car is standing on the ground. It's easier when it has it has the weight lifted from its wheels - on a hoist.

Get your car to a workshop and let them identify the fault. You can change the worn parts yourself

Mazda 6 2006 front brake pad clicking noise

Same problem, unscrew the 2 caliper bolts, they should have a rubber boot at top and MUST have a bushing type layer - like a rubber sleeve over the front end of bolt like a 2 inch rubber sleeve that is inserted into the caliper. Without the sleeve bushing and rubber boot at the top head of bolt the caliper will make a clicking sound going over bumps as the whole caliper will make the clicking sound hitting as the pads or rotors will have play. Had all bushings, struts, shocks wheels ball joints, sway bars, control arms checked but this simple bolt going into caliper will make calipers have enough play to knock when going over bumps. never would have thought as all pads, rotors etc tight as drum but old school tech found it and solved, 06 rx8 try its cheap and easy ix.

Clunking sound in the rear end. When you hit a bump the back end goes all over the road . 2004 endeavor.

sounds like you need new shockers(must be done in pairs)when off, check all rubber bushes/linkages.

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

Most definately some bushing. Just check all of them, make sure all the bolts are tight. Jack the car up and get underneath it and start wiggling the suspension. Grab the wheel and shake it. Try to find the corner or side of the vehicle that the sound comes from.

Thumping Sound not from Engine.

There is no way to tell other than having it lifted off the ground and have a mechanic or mechanic friend look at it.
The bushing wear can usually be seen when the car is up off the ground. but no promise that the bushings would be the problem for sure.
