broken shock

hard to tell if the shock is broken with it in situ, u gan grab it and it seems okay, only way to tell is to jack the car up, on the side u suspect the noise is coming from,and undo the lower end of the shock, u will soon see if its broken off inside the shock,., when mine broke, i imediately got under the car, and felt the shock, it seemed to be okay, but once the weight was off it, it became obvious it was kaput, in the rear of course it could also be the muffler, among several other things , i havnt heard of the torsion beam giving problems, actualy being positive for a change, if it wasnt for the thought of the automatic trans playing up, i would be happy to keep it, its not a bad car to drive, bit under powered, but, its not a sports car after all, but oh, the tranny is a worry.
