A worn (front) bushing on the rear lower control arm can cause a noise when going over bumps. Replacing the worn bushing should stop the noise.

    All bushings in the lower control arm were dry rotted out and had to get new bushings pressed in. I wasn't able to get a control arm with the bushings pre-installed, that would have made it a lot cheaper and easier.

    Noisy 'clunk' when going over bumps - brought it to mechanic & it's been verified that it's the control arm. Fairly expensive, so haven't repaired it yet.
