Just began yesterday and has been happening on and off, not constantly. And the knocking is loud, sounds like someone is hitting bottom left rear of car with hammer.
Yup, mine just started rattling, getting louder everyday, rear-right shock absorber.
Loud sqeeking in rear of vehicle when going over bump, & driving on poor road conditions. Every little bump gone over it seems is felt. Diagnosis: replace front and rear struts, and replace rear rocker arm. Have conv, 6 cylinder autostick trans.
Terrible rattle started on the left drivers side, then a week later started on the right passenger side..... Can't believe struts and shocks going out at only 32,000 miles
