last week i started getting a slight knocking on the rear passenger wheel when going over speed ramps etc, but this morning i went out and it was happening on virtually every bump i went over, for about 2 miles, then all of a sudden it stopped, had to go out again this afternoon and it was back, but again after a couple of mile it stopped,
any ideas guys before i take it to a garage, i want to try and start fixing things myself

cheers

Check the drop links on the anti roll bar at the rear, if one of them come loose then you get the occasional "bonk" when the body rolls.

Might just be a loose nut on the droplink/arb

The ones that sit sideways need to be tightened whilst you hold the bolt section still with an Allen key. Some peeps try to do them up with no Allen key and they rattle/knock.
