Default Clunking rear

Clunking sounds like a loose shock / strut over bumps usually when there is
less weight on the drivers side, like turning left. Taking bumps straight on as
well. Sounds like drivers side. I didnt know if the tie-rods in rear are
common failure issues or not. I didnt notice leaky struts but maybe they are
old? Maybe someone in cyberspace has had a simular problem. Thanks for the
feedback. Oh yea, it's a 98 Camry 4cyl 75,000miles
Thanks in advance

Default Re: Clunking rear

Most clunking noise on Camrys is from
the front strut towers..rear ones are not
usually noisey...Everything in the trunk
secure? Low tire press in the spare has
led to a few rattles..Tire tools secure too?
Check those things first...I have the
original rear struts on my 97 with
175,000 miles, just changed the front
struts recently...

If no loose or damaged struts/mounts, try changing your sway bar rubber
bushings
