thumping from rear at low speed

Doesn't matter if I am braking or coasting. As the car slows the noise slows as well. It sounds like it is related to the revolutions of the tire/wheel.
I jacked up the car today and spun the tire but no noise came out. Seemed to spin quite freely. One guy guessed a loose strut but I don't know. Any ideas?

jack the car up again, and try to wiggle the tire side to side, it may be a wheel bearing.

Took it to the Brake folks and they said the brakes can knock a bit as the wear in and it's not uncomon for a knock. But it should go away when you apply the brakes.
Having said that I'm on board with the Lug Nut conspiracy Theory:cool:

I notice when I pull on the driveshaft it has a little more play than the opposite shaft. Could it be the CV type joint?

The drum was extremely difficult to remove on that side because there's been a lot of pressure on the hub, by having play in the axel. I think this probelm initaially develops from an under torqued castle nut...
two pennies in the well...good luck
