Suspension noise-need ID...Video attached.

rear axle maybe? shock?
its coming from rear left...its embarrassing how loud it is...in the video, im driving around 5-10mph..increases with speed, however, its not constant, it seems worse under load and sometimes you cant hear anything for a few seconds sometimes you think you drag a piece of plastic/metal on the ground..

very annoying..ive had a small creaking noise on that side since last summer but went away for some time...now since ive been playing around with ride heights, it went crazy...so loud that id rather drive my other car til I figure out whats wrong.....

took the wheel off but nothing seems suspect...no leaks, cracked rubber or anything....

Could be the shocks. Mine made similar noise just days before I converted to coilovers....It's gone now.

On my work computer I can't hear it as well - but creaking or popping kind of noise maybe the rear swing arm ball joints if that's what you're hearing - articulating the suspension a bit might have put more load on them and now you are hearing their age -

You have 145k miles? I thought your LeMans was like 50k? Lol -

Oh shoot I confused your LeMans with StephenVA's who's has ultra low miles - you were the guinea pig for the Dynavin N6 which convinced me to get one

Yup, never knew you got one! How do you like it?
I somehow lost the mini sd card with the navi...so after I get another one I doubt it'll ever come out of its slot again!
