rear strut mount bad?

in just the past few days i have been noticing a clunking noise when i go over stuff like a pothole. it doesnt do it on every bumb but its coming from the trunk on the drivers side. Is there a way to tell by looking at it if the strut mount is bad?

Re: rear strut mount bad?

first of all, stop driving over potholes and any other lage objects that are gonna destroy your suspension. its gonna destroy your tires and wheels too.

and its probably nothing. your suspension is gonna clunk when you hit large objects. and yes you can usually tell if something is broken just by looking at it. but its probably not. your wheel is gonna bend before your shock mount breaks. if something was actually broken, you'd hear it more then just when hitting potholes.

well I live in a big city in wisconsin. You cannot avoid holes and big bumbs. They go accross the whole width of the road. I was always taught to never ignore a noise.

I had a noise like that, it ended up being the upper control arm. It was loose and moving around, I had to replace the control arm mounts, but you might want to check and make sure the control arm mounts in the trunk are tight.

Yea you definitely need to check that everything is bolted up right. I had a friend with an M3, and one of his control arms got disconnected while he was drive at 40+ mph and did like 6K worth of damage to the front end, bending and breaking all kinds of ****
