Thumping Noise From Back

Recommended Posts

I know it's not possible to know what to hear the voice via the forum but I was hoping that there might be some common issues generating the noise from the rear of my 01 turbo.

When I go over certain bumps any speed it can hear this low soft thump or da da - da da like noise from the rear.

from my car experience it almost sounds like the strut missing the little plastic ring, or a mis-installed spring, or some plastic part hitting the body panel

Any ideas or solutions?

Check for loose rear swaybar mounts.

Just check that, everything is tight....i just removed all the rear carpet and went out for a drive, i am pretty sure it's from the suspension thou, almost sounds like a loose spring - could that be possible?

Thanks again.

Loren, you were right the first time! I acutally brought a set of rear OEM suspension to replace, when I started the process taking everything apart I noted the Upper sway bar link was loose! I only checked the lower mounting point the first time... Now no more noise! Thanks for the info!
