I have a 08 Pontiac g8 GT. The rear end is making a popping noise like a CV joint on a front wheel drive car. What could it be?

Sounds like its time for rear shocks. But first get under there and have a good look. Have a helper bounce the car up and down while you watch the suspension work. See if everything is moving as it should. It could also be something binding or perhaps a broken bracket. Be careful under there and wear safety goggles to keep debris out of your eyes.
