Default noises

I have a 92 camry..
Whenever I go over a bump I hear knocking noises from the rear of the car
(its sounds like its coming from the back, drivers side) Any ideas?

Thanks!
Neil

Worn swaybar bushings is a standard problem in Camries. It's not
safety-related but it sure is annoying. The dealer wants $130 and a local
garage said $110. Only two bolts need to be undone to install the new
bushings. I believe they sell for $25 in the after market.

First check for anything loose in the trunk.
Next check the rear anti sway bar bushings. The sway bar is apx. 1/2"
in diameter, attaches near the bottom of the struts and connects both
sides.
There are rubber (neoprene?) bushings that can harden with age. Very
easy to replace, just remove the two bolts holding each bushing
"cover" in place.
Third, could be upper strut mount, or strut, but check the other items
first.
