Hi I have picked up a banging type noise in my rear suspension mostly on the drivers side over sharp bumps. I have jacked up the car a couple of times an pried on the bushings shock mounts, rear diff mounts wheel bearings and brakes. Can not find movement or evidence of metal hitting metal. All exhaust checks good as well. Bouncing the car by pushing on the bumper when on the ground does not produce the sound and the shocks seem OK also no oil leaks around shock pistons. It is driving me nuts. The only thing else I thought I could do is put it on an alignment rack so I could get under it with normal weight on the suspension. Car has a 140,000 miles on it and is an Avant. Thanks Richard
