Strange Clunk/Clang Coming From Driver Side Rear Wheel When Moving?
I'm new here, but I have browsed through the forums a lot. I tried looking for any info on the problem I am having, but was unsuccessful. So, I will try to explain my issue in the best way possible and maybe someone can help me out.
About 2 months ago, I had the transmission replaced in my 2006 GTO with a brand new one under warranty. Everything was fine and the car ran great. However about a month ago, I started to hear this clanging noise coming from driver side rear wheel when the car was moving. It sounds like something is hanging down and as the axle spins, hitting the body of the car. This has happened about 4 times, but it doesn't do it all the time which is the weird thing. For example, this morning I was in stop and go traffic because I take PCH to work every morning. It started to occur after I stopped and lasted about 3 miles then went away again. I myself have gotten underneath the car and checked all over. Wasn't able to find anything that could be linked to this noise. It is very strange. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue or maybe could shed some light on what it might be? I think it might be something with the ebrake but I am not too tech savy with these cars. I am however the original owner so I have treated the car well since I bought it new in 2007. Thanks for any help in advance.
