  • Clunking in rear end

    So after installing the replacement crossmember in my friend's 2000 SE Sport I have a clunking noise in the rear end when I hit even the slightest bump. I looked under there and everything seems fine. I tried completely emptying the trunk of jack, spare, lug wrench and etc but no luck. Still clunks. It sort of sounds like it might be something at the top of the rear struts or shocks. Is there any common failure areas there that I should be looking for? The car has 145K on it and had been sitting a little while before I started working on it.

    Thanks in advance for any info or advise

    Yup -- strut mounts -- very common

      Check the Rear Endlinks and Sway bar bushings.
