    Question Banging when backing out of parking space

    '09 WRX Sedan ... 37K miles ... I was turning while backing out of a parking space yesterday when I heard and felt loud banging under the car. At first, I thought I must have run over something like a large rock, or ran into somebody. I jumped out of the car, and saw nobody around, and saw nothing under the car. I went to pull forward, and felt a few more bangs. I limped it home, about a mile, but am wondering what could be going on under there ... axle going out ??, transmission ?? Any ideas on what I should check ...

    Have a look and tell us. I suspect axle.

    hard to tell...was it more of a clunking? or a banging?
