Im not sure if this is even a suspension problem, but it sounds like it is coming from that sort of area.

When I come down from speed bumps, going almost as slowly as possible, and sometimes when accelerating & braking, I get a clunk coming from the rear passenger suspension.

Is this a shot shock? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

it does sound like shocks, but check it all over, it might even have a loose bolt for the shock.

Secure your spare wheel and jack!! it does sound like shocks tho. But can be upper/lower trailing arm bushes even watts link bushes.

My wagon did the same thing until I changed all the rear bushes {while I was there did the shocks too} cost me about $60 for the bushes & did it myself I was quoted $200 from a shop for the whole job no more clunk
