    driver side rear bumping noise

    i have a 95 camaro with a 3.4 automatic. my coil springs were shot so i replaced them and the rear shocks and now i still have a bumping kind of noise everytime i drive on a somewhat bumpy road or hit a bump (small or large). i cant for the life of me find out what it is its only on the drivers side in the rear and sounds like its coming from right around where the wheel is. the sway bar and links look alright and the shocks and springs are brand new can anyone help me please?

    Sway bar end link is always the first suspect, but sounds like you eliminated that. Have you bounced the car on its suspension by hand to see if you can duplicate the noise? I would take a look at the other suspension bushings.

    Double check the upper shock mount on the drivers side and the swaybar endlink ,if they're even slightly loose they'll make noise.

    check to make sure you tighten down the shock mount bushings enough like the other members mention.

    Also check the rear control arms as well. The bushings could be worn on those.
