there's been a klanking sound comming from the back of my car. I just got the rear suspension replaced today, but it's still there. Could it be that something isn't secured in my trunk, or that something with the rear struts is still affected?

try pulling the emergency brake up a little while it's rattling and see if it goes away. I have a noise like that that seams to be coming from my brake caliper rattling around on the slides. I've been going nuts trying to find it and fix it. I finally just gave it to my mechanic to fix tonight. If that's your problem I'll let you know the fix when I get it back tommorro

I had a local shop do my brakes because I didn't have time. they had the car 5 time already trying to fix it. supposedly they tried the shims, I gave them another caliper mount, they switched the slides, adjusted the e-brake. nothing worked. I had to tell them it was the brakes, they tried to point me to everything else in the car. Now I sent it to a trusted mechanic and I'll have to pay someone to fix their incompotence. I would normally do t all myself, but I have no garage to work in and I haven't had them time either. :(

it's a curvy bar almost directly behind the wheels, give it a tug from side to side, if it slides, then you should replace bushings and link ends, cheap and not too hard to do 15-30 mins

so..what have we concluded? I don't want to turn it into a trial and error thing because you waste money that way.

did you try moving the rear sway bar? I didn't say go buy it, I said try to see if that's the problem... just need to get a little dirty.

no offence but that's all your gonna get from here. if you want a 100% diagnosis then you will need to bring it to a mechanic. all we can do is try to point you in the right direction and hope you figure it out from our experience.
