    Question Rear end problems

    When I go over speed bumps, a lot/most of the time, it sounds like something it breaking in my rear end, I think from the driver side rear (not sure).

    Also, I think this might be the same problem, but when I'm at the track doing a launch or just pealing out a little bit, my rear end will bump really hard and loud up and down (sounds like my car's going to fall apart right then and there).

    Has anyone else had this problem? Or at least one of them? I really would like to run good track times again, but the car's so busy jumpin up and down that I can't get off the line. Thanks.

    I would take a look at your suspension on the ds, where you think the noise is coming from, could be a anyting from a dried out bushing to a broken suspension bolt, or your u joint. You just need too try and pinpoint it.
    The track issue i would say is something completely different, what your descrbiing is called "wheel hop", the point between breaking the tires loose and them hooking up, one word of advice from someone who learned the hard way is too let off as soon as you feel it or hear it. If you dont your gonna break a few very important parts out back.
