Default Rear shock mount

Have a new noise... Seems to be coming from the right rear suspension. Occurs all the time even while driving at slow speeds on a smooth road. I saw a TSB number TNN72-06 (7206), not sure if its related(was not able to view the bulletin). I have removed the wheel, and checked the bushings/swaybar endlinks, and such, and found little to no play. I have not looked at the shock mount as I have not had enough time. Is it in the trunk, or is it behind the wheel liner?

TIA

It should be in the trunk.

If you have little play in the sway bar link that could be it.

I have a 2002 S80 T6 and have the same bumping from the right rear suspension. Happens only in the morning when i head for work, It goes away after a 1 or 2 miles. Had it to the dealer twice and could not find anything loose or broken. I suspect its a bad shock that making the noise. After the shock warms up the noise goes away. Of course it makes no noise when at the daeler. Any one have this problem. My plan is to leave the car at the dealer overnight, then take for a test drive neaxt morning.

Does it the sound a stone hitting the mudguard? Like "thwack".

Happens only very periodically for me, maybe once every 2 weeks, and it may not happen when you are going over a bump.

For me it was the "spring seat"

I would say the sound is like a "thwack" or sharp bump. At any type of slight indentation of the road it is audible
and as mentioned before, after a mile or two, it goes away. This spring seat, does the 2002 rear strut have spring seats. Your link identifies the seat for a 2002 T6 model

Odd, normally the front stuffs up. More weight on it than the rear.

The link is for the front spring seat (common even on the non T6 models) but the upper mounts might be different.

There is also a spring seat on the rear but it is different from the link I sent. I have not seen the rear bits sold elsewhere which suggest that it is not a common item that wears quickly.

I'm afraid its going to be a trip to the dealer (or suspension specialist for you), they can then tell you what needs to be replaced. No point in ordering parts that are not broken.

Check the rear sway bar end links.
They commonly go bad.
