Unhappy thumping rear right 02 camry

I've had a thumping booming sound from the rear right of my 2002 camry xle since new. The dealer installed strut mount felt pads, changed the tires, new springs, new struts over the last seven months. Nothing has worked to get rid of the noise. The say they have no idea of what is causing the noise. Anyone have any ideas???

Thanks
Gabe

Did you check the other post http://www.toyotanation.com/showthre...hreadid=18399?

Look at #6 and #7 on the list. The previous generation Camry (97-01) had these problems as well, especially in the front. I've had the same problem on my '00 in the front - thumping and knocking and all recommended fixes did not work (struts, strut mount, springs...)

Is it the suspension or is it something in the trunk area? I too get a thumping noise from the back but I think it has something to do with the trunk area. I think it is either the tools attached to the fibre board that rattles or the board itself when it shifts or moves over large bumps.

For the rear in my case I think it is something in the trunk area and not the suspension itself.

There are some insulation pieces, plus some rails on the trunk lid that might be doing it. Lots of things can move there (including the shelf, center stop light housing, speaker wires, cardboard under the mat in the jack area, the jack itself ...) I'll need to some dey empty the trunk completely and see what's causing it. It is not nearly as bad as the front, so I've been putting off dealing with the rear for a while

For the front, it definitely has something to do with the strut mount, but not sure how to fix it (new mounts did not help much - something just does not fit right there...)

Unhappy thumping rear suspension

Thanks for the info. Tried everything mentioned (TSB's, emptying trunk, new springs/struts, strut mount cushioning, different tires/wheels, lining trunk with sound deadening material) and nothing worked. The dealer and Toyota reps are stumped as to the cause even after six visits to the shop. I'll try anything at this point to get rid of this annoying thumping. gabe
