View Full Version : sound coming from rear of car

I just bought a 1991 Celica GT and there seems to be a clunking sound coming from the rear everytime you hit bumps. This happened on my 90 ST that I had a few years ago as well, but I never really cared, it was my beater car. I was wondering wether or not you guys know what it might be.

every 5th gen makes that noise, liftbacks do at least. just turn up the music.

i could be your rear sway bar bushings allowing the bar to bang back and forth, i've had that happen before.

same things happens to me, i dont notice it anymore, and as the other dude said, turn the music up.

could be a host of things, from strut mounts to worn anti-sway bar bushings. I'd get it on a lift and check your bushings and all that nice stuff.
