Default Clunk and creak in the rear end.

Hi all

I have an 06 na pt and recently it's clunks in the rear when I hit a pot hole and resessed man hole cover. And while turn corners I get this creaky squeaky moan, like a bushing is toast. I have taken everything out of the rear of the car to conclude its not my stuff. I have replaced the rear shocks with kyb gas a just. When the car is at a stand still and u rock it side to side u get the creak. I personally think its the bushing n the centre of the axle that has those cross bars mounted to it.

But I'm stumped. Any one have this issue or know the cause.

Thanks Corey

I'll check the spare tire carrier. But I think it's the link.

Check the spare from under the car mine had reached the fully up position but was still allowing the tire to move. Had to adjust the rack a bit.

Best way to check the link is put the car on a level surface. Grab the top of the rear wheel and push/pull in and out harshly, if the wheel moves and clunks, the link is shot :-)

Thanks every one for the help it was indeed the watts link it was so shot that while bolted up u could shake it a good 2 inches forward and back. I also replaced the lateral links connecting to the link. As they had torn rubber boots and dry rot.

Thanks again

Corey
