    Question Thumping noise In rear end. 06 sti

    I have a 06 wrx sti. Whenever I am at low speeds hitting a bump or turning my car makes a thumping noise in the back. I can't tell which side it's on. My sway bar links were snapped in the rear I replaced both of them and it didnt fix my problem.

    The more weight I have in the back the more it happens. If I let the car sit for a week it won't happen right away for a couple hours.*

    Anyone have a similar problem? Or a idea of what it is?

    Strut clunk; common with the STI's struts. Can be regreased.

    Sway bar bushings; check for play up/down and fore/aft.
