knocking noise from the rear?

Anyone know what this could be?
I thought it was the shocks as i knew they were a bit weak, so had them replaced but it still knocks a bit going over potholes etc, not really bad but a bit annoying. It seems to be the right side.

I asked my mechanic if it was the radius arms or rear bushes but he said they looked ok (?).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks :-)

It might be your exhaust hitting the top of the rear axle

Re: knocking noise from the rear?

Sometimes third-party exhausts are not bent to exactly the right geometry. I had a knock from the rear, and I tried to hunt it down, fixing a loose heatshield, replacing exhaust rubbers, padding the handbrake cables with foam, replacing a cable-tie with the proper handbrake cable clip etc... I still had the knock, then I had a new backbox and mid-section, and the sound went away. The previous exhaust must have been bent a little bit wrong, causing it to knock the chassis as it bounced around.

Re: knocking noise from the rear?

awwwwww nooooo.....

I have the same thing, sounds like 'shoes in a dryer' sort of knocking, but mainly when I turn right with one or more passengers in the car

And I just bought two new shocks for the back

And I had a new exhaust fitted a couple months after I bought the car, and therefore a couple months before the knocking started

Dang... oh well I only paid 40 for both and my friend is fitting them for a bottle of whiskey i didn't really want
