2001 Hyundai Tiburon Base 4 Cyl 2.0L - Steering & Suspension
Rear axle making thumping, rattling, loud banging sort of noise?
I was driving home from work and it was snowing and crap. Heard this thumping every once in a while. Going right around 45 miles per hour. Pulled into a parking lot thinking I for sure had a popped tire. Checked. No problem. Kicked off some built up snow and ice. Went on my way again. About 1/8th of a mile down the road the rear of my car started sounding like something was thumping, rattling, I dunno.. Just a lot of noise! I thought that maybe it was something in my trunk that was just hitting sides (i had a bunch of stuff I was bringing home) pulled over again and moved that to the backseat. Went on my way again to drive about 5 minutes to get home. Noise got really loud once or twice. Seemed to lose a little bit of control (not sure if that's cuz of the snow and ice and crap or my car?) right before I was about to pull into my driveway, i heard a little bit of sqeaking?
Please for the love of God, someone give me ideas of what it is?? :( Freakin out here.. Also, stupid question I'

    Several possibilities; faulty / worn upper or lower shock or strut mount, worn / faulty suspension bushing, worn / faulty rear wheel / hub bearing assembly.
