Distinct "clunk" from rear left suspension

Post by CBradio »

Since Ive changed the shocks and brakes on my car I notice a distince clunk coming from the drivers side (left) rear, sounds like a "popping clunk."

It doesnt happen over potholes most of the time, but always happens over speed bumps- it seems to happen as early as when the front of the car has hit the bump.

It also happens on wide left turns, usually when Im straightening out.

Thinking something is wrong, or I did something wrong, but cant seem to find what it is. Any ideas?

Thank you
