Re: Strange sound from rear - Bad shock?

As a follow-up to my previous post; the banging and clicking sound from 
the rear of my Quattro may be a bad stock. When I bought the car, all four
 shocks had been replaced (KYB's). I didn't think this was a problem 
because when I bounce the rear, everything seems nice and stiff.

But.... I noticed if the car has been sitting for a few hours, I can bounce 
the right rear and it seems very loose. Then, after about four or five bounces,
it tightens up and feels like the other shocks.

Has anyone had a shock fail in this way? Doesn't seems like it could be 
anything else, so I guess I'll replace that one shock and see what happens.
