Rear Suspension Banging?


I have a C220 CDI saloon 02 reg.

If I am the only person in the car and go over speed bumps there is no noise from the rear of the car but whenever I have passengers in the back there is a loud banging noise from the near side rear area, regardless of what side my passengers are on... At first I thought it was the exhaust and had that looked at but the exhaust is fine, not loose or rotting... The noise also sounds when cornering right... not always though!

Sometimes there is a creaking noise from the rear when riding speed bumps, possible spring??

I had the car MOT'd today and there was nothing untowards and its driving me crazy as to what it could be...

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Had a similar problem recently - car went through the NCT (Irish version of MOT) fine, nothing detected, brought her back to garage and insisted the noise was there. (as usual because I'm a woman I clearly know nothing about cars and it was all in my head - lol) Anyway long story short the noise turned out to be a ball joint, they've ordered the part in and it's coming on Wedns. It's pretty important so get it checked out Hope this helps.
