Question:

When I hit bumps in the road, the driver side rear suspension clicks. What could cause that and is it a problem?

Answer:

Noise issues are difficult to pin point without actually hearing it for yourself, but there are a few things you can check that are common.

1) Make sure the exhaust is not loose and there are no broken exhaust hangers

2) Look at the rear sway bar links and make sure they are not broken(most common)

3) Make sure there is nothing loose in the trunk/back of the car especially around the spare tire tool area

4) To test your shocks, bounce the rear corner of the vehicle, release when pushing downward. The vehicle should rise then stop half way back down, if it goes any further: you need to replace the shocks/struts

  1. Sorry if my ealier remark seemed totally narrowminded. My braind damage is letting me down when I dont get enough sleep. I will self medicate with vodka. Please put it down to lack of medication. It pains me so much. What really can crash a weak marriage is borderline behavior. Just try to keep a happy face. Get medication. Nobody shold deal with serious behaviour issues alone. What really can break a partnership is stinky feet.
