    Default banging from right rear suspension over bumps

    I guess I am assuming the banging is coming from the suspension. The car (2001 GTP) has Koni struts on it with about 80K miles, 160K miles on the car. The front suspension has had the tie rods replace, I don't know that the rear has had anything done but the struts.

    Any suggestions what to look for when I jack it up after work tonight?

    sway bar end link or like mine the sway bar rusted through and the end link held it up but it was clanging off the exhaust.

    My r/r noise was the E-brake cable flopping around, I could feel it in the drivers side front floor too...
    not what it looks like

    The chassis side sway bar bushing on my 2004 is missing and that is my banging sound. The end links are fine

    My 05 started making a rattling a while ago that I attributed to the cable for the E-brake hitting the trailing arm. Then today the rattling started getting worse and at about 20 mph the back end felt a little wobbly and the toe link has come loose and apparently wrecked the threads.
