I know when I ask this question there is going to be a lot of this :rolleyes: but are there thrust arms at the back of the car.:1zhelp:

The reason I am asking is my car is going in again soon because this thud from the right rear wheel is getting worse, I am checking the ball joints, wheel bearings, tranny/diff mount (this time I want to eyeball the rubber mounting part) and part 33552283159.
We have already checked:
exhaust hangers
swaybar bushings
suspension/shock absorbers and associated parts
subframe
tranny/diff mount

On that last thing the tranny/diff mount where are the rubber bushing positioned?

There's an upper ball joint and a set of lower bushings, which for some reason the factory still calls ball joints. These go bad all the time.

Thanks guys but I found the source of the noise, central exhaust hangers. What made it difficult to find was only one had failed. Also just for everybody info they have changed the design of the these rubber mounts to a stronger design.
