There is a loud noise/clunk/thump/click/bump sound that occurs when I enter a driveway that is steep. I enter it slowly at an angle, 45 degrees, almost feels like I end up on 2 wheels, almost as though the car tilts and sometimes I hear one of the rear tires lose traction. I always enter the driveways very slow and at an angle to prevent the front from getting scratched. Does anyone hear that? I think the sound is coming from near the rear tire. Maybe it is a chassis or suspension issue? Is something loose? Broken?

i get that noise rarely but i believe it is the same as the isx50 when u install aftermarket springs. its something to do wit the suspension i hope and not something else.

I get that all the time. My guess is the suspension does not extend well enough for all four wheels to be on the ground at once. I was scared in the beginning but not Im used to it. I make sure to go on those drive ways really slow...

I've accepted it as part of the trade off in getting a good handling car. Our dampers or shock absorbers are setup differently. As you noticed much stiffer, because their compression and rebound rates are calibrated differently. Also our frames are quite stiff, therfore body flex is much less. That's why when we approach climbs at an angle, a rear tire can "hangs". It's all par for the course.
