Hey guys. I'm having an issues with my 2008 Ridgeline whereby I'm getting a clicking / banging / thumping noise from the rear end when driving over bumps. Best description though would be a click. Upon inspection, I found that one of the sway bar end links was broken. Both were replaced, but the noise persists. The noise only happens while going over bumps or sometimes when taking off from a stop. No matter how much I jump up and down or shake the truck from side to side, I can't replicate the noise while the truck is stationary. After the truck is lifted off the ground for inspection, the noise goes away for a day or 2, but keeps returning. It would seem that the problem goes away when something is unloaded, then reloaded. I brought it to my mechanic who couldn't figure it out either. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
