My wife's 86 gl sedan, Annie, is making some weird sounds. I've been driving her, while working on the wagon and now she wants her fair share of attention. :-\ When I'm driving, the right rear coilovers squeak. If I hit a bump, there's a deep clunk that comes from the same area. The coilover seems to be working fine, but the noise that eminates from that area has me worried. Any ideas of what I might be looking for?

Thanks ~Myles~

Okay, I'll check it when it gets light out, well when I finally get up.:rolleyes: Hope that's the problem. It'd sure be nice if it was that easy...Thanks

Sorry I can't offer a solution, but if you get it figured out, I'd love to know what's causing it (and how to fix it). My 91 Loyale does the exact same thing - a sort of hollow knocking/banging sound from the rear end when I drive across uneven pavement. It is most noticeable on a washboard-type surface where it manfiests as a rapid "clunk-clunk-clunk". It does seem to be most pronounced on the right (passenger) side, but I think both sides are involved. The bolts that anchor the top of the struts are tight, and I even replaced both rear shocks and the bump-stops that go with them, but it didn't seem to make a difference.
