Default suspension issues..

my suspension in the back is making an echno noise on the passenger side, they looked at it many times, and can't find the problem, they replaced the struts, the ball bearings, and tightened everything....this sound is louder on that suspension only (2001 s80 t6)!!

Did they replace the rear sway bar links?
Is it like a clunking noise or a squeeking noise?

its more of a rattling clunk, that echoes, and lets say i go on a small pot hole, the driver side is crisp, and i go over the same pot hole on
the passenger sides, its sloppy and echoes.

They have also checked the exhaust and things like that?
Are you sure nothing is in by the spare tire?

Not yet I will check tomorrow.

Are you sure they inspected everything really good?

There is alot to inspect. Make sure they inspected the SWAY BAR LINKS. If they are bad they will make the exact noise you are complaining about.

Nothing except the basics. The bushings,sway bar links.

Have you ever hit anything in the back of the car?
