Has anyone visited the dealer for this issue ? It’s time I definitely go. I’ve owned this car for a year and half know and it’s been making the noise since. I’m not the only one with this problem, many other have complained about it. I haven’t had time to visit the dealer for work and my car being low. I knew they were gonna use the “oh you modified the suspension that’s why it was making noise crap”. But a friend of mine had is completely brand new 2019 front suspension replaced do it that making noise as well and car steering hard to the right. I was running bc coilovers and always thought it was the coilovers until I switched back to my stock shocks and I’m still getting that noise in the rear. It’s like a clunk and something is loose. I even checked everything when I took my rear coilovers out and couldn’t find anything wrong.

Just figured you'd see something in the 19 pages there that might correspond to your issue. Or maybe ask there to see if anyone experiences it all year? Just trying to help :)

Did you manage to find out what the issue was? I’m getting the same clunking loose noise. At first I thought the rear end links were loose and making the rear sway bar move around but it wasn’t that.

Where I live its a 80-90 degree weather all year around so I doubt the reason is cold weather.

There are rubber bushings that the springs sits on. In my case it was the bottom ones. Both were not installed correctly by a shop and was causing the spring to hit lower mount it sits on. I replaced both bushings and installed them myself correctly. There are two nipples on the bottom of those bushings and you gotta make sure they both pop into that lower control arm!
