Hey Civicx,

Car: 2016 Civic EX Sedan (non-turbo)

I have a been a long time lurker since I bought the car new in 2016. I have run into an issue with my strut assembly, maybe? It is my daily driver with no mods, and I do mostly highway driving. This surprised me when it started about 6 months ago and has gotten to the point I cannot ignore it. Only happens at low speeds and going over uneven pavement/bumps on the driver left-hand rear side. My friends think I lug around a dead body in the back... or my car is falling apart... awesome.

Keep in mind I live in Canada and its below 0 degrees(Celsius) for 6-7 months of the year. I have been reading that this is the major culprit for the civic strut dampeners to act up. I am posting to figure out the best fix, as I am already out of warranty. I do not want this fix to cost an arm and a leg to diagnose on a relatively brand new car.

Any help would be appreciated. I think this is my problem, but uncertain and would like some input.

I read through these threads but it was back and forth on what it could be and I could not figure out what was the best way to proceed. The sound is identical to the SI thread.

Thank you!

I have the same issue, but it is only with speed I can hear a thump over bumps only.

i have a 2016 civic ex. i had the same problem. big loud thump in the back left side over bumps. mine usually with speed. i thought it was the end link, but it turned out shocks were gone. replaced and now the sound is gone.
check to see if your shocks are leaking.
you can test if its the sway bar end link by removing it and go for a careful test drive.
