Before I take a spanner to the rear end as it were, could the noise be a worn out shock absorber and that the damping is non existent ?

hi there, does the back end look lower to the floor than usual,tyres closer to the rear arches, i had a problem and it ended up being that one of the rear torsion bars on the rear axle had corroded and snapped, ended up having to replace the back axle with one from a breakers yard, but be careful if it is that as i found out that there are quite a few different types of these back axles(ended up exchanging mine 3 times as it was the wrong one lol), take it to a garage as they will find it easier on the ramps to check, hope this helps you, regards, chris
