I'd be interested to know what you find.  I have similar noise that came up
after a few adjustments to my coilovers in the rear, but have not id'd any XS
movement there or bad parts.

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]
