    New owner of 05 STi

    Hello, all I just bought a 2005 Subaru WRX STi with 78,000 miles 3rd owner, no mods or suspension upgrades. Hearing a clunking sound in the rear when going over bumps. What should I check for before I remove the wheels and lift the boot and oil it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help.

    If you're going to regrease the strut, that will help, if that is indeed the cause. That's the most common cause of the noise you describe.
