my 1995 sedan deville has a knock that comes from the rear passenger
side pillar. it does'nt so much make the knock during the up/down
travel of the suspention, but seems to be after suspention travel. like
an after thought.
the best way to describe it is that it sounds like the old garage horror
story of someone hanging a nut on a wire inside the body to drive the
owner crazy. just like that...i go over a bump and after the bump, one
loud knock and then usual immediately a lesser quieter knock.

please help, does this noise sound familiar to anybody ?

thanks in advance,

p.s. here's a recent of her...

which side????????? If it is the left side i am thinking maybe the fuel filter is maybe hitting the under side. The strap may have broke. It happened on mine.
Could be bad shocks, the sounds mine made were enough to drive someone insane.
Grab an exhaust pipe tip. Shake it from side to side. Rattle? Might be one of the hanger cookies. Cheap fix.
Only one way to find out. Open up the side pillar and do a little exploratory surgery.
