    weird clunking noise

    Hey, I have a 2011 wrx and been getting a very loud audible clunking noise which sounds like its coming from the right rear. Only happens when I go up an off camber driveway or entrance to a shopping mall etc...When I go up straight on it doesn't happen. I have whiteline rear sway with kartboy endlinks, cusco rear lower control arms and fortune 500 coilovers. Its not the coilovers because the noise was there before and after I got them. Myself and 2 subaru mechanics have checked the ball joints, endlinks, and all such bolts and everything looks bolted down. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as this is getting very annoying. Here is the Youtube video to here it. It happens right before the mudflap scrape. Wrx clunking noise - YouTube

    Are the bushings on the sway secure too? Is there play in the wheel bearings or hub? Consider riding in the back even without the seat as someone safely, slowly drives up and down your driveway so you can hear better from where the noise is coming.

    the sway bar bushings are locked in the correct place and secure...The wheel bearings and hub were all checked as well. I guess that is the next step to pinpoint exactly where it is coming from.

    Also did you check exhaust and it's hangers?

    I wonder if the situation is desperate enough to test disconnecting things -- safely of course!

    Do you have an inexpensive camera with sound and video and some duct tape? Do the driveway test that way and see?

    Yeah exhaust hangers all good with kartboy extended hangers in place. Don't have a camera but will have a friend drive and check the rear. I was just hoping someone else hadthis problem to quickly fix this. Thanks for your time.
