    So I noticed the other day whenever I go over bumps there is a rusty noise from the driver side rear spring/shocks. I don't hear this noise during normal driving just when going over bumps. What do you guys think it is? I drive it everyday and the car has 53k miles.

    That's interesting because I am noticing this same noise also.

    I also hear creaking occasionally when I go slowly over curbs and I expect it is flexing of the body making that noise.
