what makes a clunk noise in the rear of the car going over bigger bumps

Asked by May 10, 2013 at 08:53 AM about the Jaguar X-TYPE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just put new shocks in the rear of the car. There was a clunk noise when you went over
bigger bumps or you hit a bit bigger holes and the clunk noise is still there after the
shocks are in. Trying to narrow down what may be causing the noise. There has been a
couple of people look at the car and they do not see/think it is the control arms. Thoughts
please.

1 Answer

there is an end of travel rubber stopper adhered to the car chassis, either it's gone hard now or fallen off, it should be triangular and hollow---at least that part comes to mind~
