Could be anything. Rear control arms, springs? Have to hear it

struts might be blown. kinda doubt it being an 03. just take it to a shop and have them check out your suspension

i'm gonna guess struts, but that's just a wild guess being that i haven't actually heard the sound. a shop shouldn't charge you just to take a quick glance over everything

Like I said earlier C/A or springs, maybe rear shocks. Go to your shop and they hopefully figure it out

i haven't really found a shop other than the dealership. would a place like midas or firestone look at something like that for me?

just try a hole in the wall mechanic. they usually dont charge to take a quick look. but beware...some of them load you up with b.s. to make a quick buck.
