I have a 2004 S60R auto with 97k and it has developed a clunking sound in the rear when you go over small bumps or are on a bumpy road. It does have TME springs all the way around but they have been on for several months. I did recently install new lower control arms in the front and IPD poly inserts in the subframe bushings which are great but now I notice this dumb noise in the rear. Are there bushings in the rear that I should replace as well? I checked everything out when I had the car on a rack and everything looks intact but I wasnt really checking very good.

I have a can of fix a flat doing that! Lol. Gonna take some time to take care of it one of these days.



Make sure your battery is secure too.

Sorry no real meaningful help. Maybe sway bar end links? Or maybe a loose shock?

Checked the sway bar end links? Grab the shaft of the end links with a pair of pliers or channel locks and shake it really good to see if the ball joints are worn and have play.

For me it was the rear shocks too. They were "fine" according to the dealership, but I replaced them anyway and voila, the clunk is gone. It was driving me insane.

I had wondered about that. Still getting a nagging noise that goes away when it's on advanced. So far only replaced the passenger front that was leaking fluid.

if you don't hear the clunk in "advanced" it's a shock(s) going bad.

Another good test is to disable 4C (one way is to pull the plug in the trunk on an accelerometer and it'll put it into a fail safe mode) and if the sounds goes away, it's a shock.

Does your car have the body kit? An I can't remember if you had an 04 or newer.
