Check the torque on the shocks first. Check all your heat shield bolts as well. I've usually read about frot sway bar bushings being replaced...never rear?

I've got the same thing. More like a rattle/ thud. Haven't had a chance to look yet, but I get the feeling it's a loose or missing exhaust hanger allowing my exhaust to move around.

I had this thud noise over small bumps. After you check all the shock bolts check the spare tire too.


If its neither of those, I found by rattling thud by banging on the frame and could hear the noise. It was the heat shield! That shield is bolted with 3 bolts. I dropped the spare tire, removed the heat shield, the reinstalled it with thick rubber washers between it and the frame... All 3 bolt locations. Thud nose is gone now!
