    Several possibilities; faulty / worn shock mount, faulty / worn rear sway arm bushing, faulty / worn suspension bushing, worn rear coil spring mount / insulator.
    Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the Auto MD website for the specific steps to inspect the suspension for strange noises and worn components.
