Cool Loud Pop, Back Rear

HI,
I'm being lazy because I recall reading it somewhere, but im in a rush atm.

While I put my PT in reverse (Once in a blue), it feels like I'm about to run over a brick, or something is underneath my tire, but there isn't. I rev it a little bit, and the car POPS and goes on for it's journey.

The first time yesterday, it actually did it when I put the car into drive, and was about to take off. It felt like their was something underneath my tire. I knew what was coming, and was listening for the noise. It came from the right,back,underneath.

My driveway is on a slight hill.
I also put in a new Motor mount on the underneath tire side. It's the wrong one that I've read is only off by a milimeter.

Any thoughts? Thank you

Have you had any rear brake work done lately?

Neat! Set up your phone outside the right rear. Record/post a video if you can.

Double check your engine mounts, lower control arm bushings and watts link on the rear end.

It 10 years old. I've seen the rear lining rust off their frames and jamb, there is not much room in the drum if that what you have on the rear.

Yep, that sounds like what has happened to me with cars that have been sitting. The parking brake binds and you have to pop them loose. They will often be fine after that, but it sounds like you have some investigating to do with your brakes.

My girlfriend was laughing at this thread. Guy says he's lazy and the suggestions posted involve checking everything from the front of the car to the back

OP's wanting a quick fix and there isn't one. That's what's funny about this thread!
