    Try adjusting the bump stops on your hatch.

    Ok, I will let you know what happens. Are the bump stops adjustable or am I looking at making them adjust?

    I would look at everything on a drive on lift , or look for signs of suspension and exhaust contact or suspension, tq arm and shaft contact.

    When you open your hatch there are two rubber stops on each side. They screw in or out, making the hatch fit loose or more tightly.

    Got it. I will adjust the stops today. I think I will buy an adjustable torque arm and relo bracket, as well as check everything on a lift. Do shops let you rent there lifts. How would I get on a lift to do an inspection if I don't personally know anybody?

    I've never heard of a shop "loaning" or "renting" their lift. There would be WAY too much liability with that I would think. You will basically just have to go to a shop (probably a muffler/exhaust shop) that works on cars and tell them your issue and they'll give you a quote to look at it.

    Or, you can jack it up in your garage/drive-way and put it on jack-stands and crawl under it yourself.

    I usually jack it and roll underneath. I rebuilt my suspension that way.

    It works. It took me a couple times rolling under there, before I stopped worrying about my car falling on me and crushing my skull.
