Re: Thud/Clunk from rear nearside of GTV
Yes.. I'd worry about the sub-frame bushes. When they go you get the subframe rubbing against the chassis.. it wears out the sub-frame at great expense.. Get a second opinion.
It may be something else, hopefully... Take the wheel off and try beating up the mechanism.. it could be play in the shock mount as mike suggests.. or you might see something else.... dodgy bearing, something knocking against the wheel arch liner etc.
Get everything out of the boot and see if that solves it (jack, spare wheel, you name it) and make sure the battery is fastened securely.
If you have the CD changer that side, take out the cassette thing and see if it's that rattling around.
Finally pack a towel under the bootlid, so it's held "tight" on the rubbers.. it may be moving about like you offered.
No bullets for Chaingun..
