Default Shattered the rear axle

The bumps sound like a kind of crash on the rear axle. I dismounted all the components on the back, and everything looks right, I greased them with grease, but the noise is still heard. The noise is pretty annoying and I can not figure out what's coming. Some ideas? I noticed that the jounce bumpers are worn out. One is missing and the other is broken by half.I will change them, but can it be because of them?

It is almost certainly the 'bell crank', part of the watts link system on the rear. it is VERY common for the bearing to wear and then make a lot of clunking and crashing.

Better take it easy running that 150mph in your PT, it may self destruct
