hi mate thanks for the reply 61000 on the clock I've checked exaust seems solid also panels seem solid and suspension springs seem fine wheel itself ok these were all checked when I fitted new shock but noise was still there anoyingly its like a dull clicking only when turning right when i go over humps or potholes everything seems normal do you think I should have it checked with dealer costly here in the uk but maybe better to be safe than sorry eh

peterkulesza is an unknown quantity at this point
check stupid things (like inside rear seat moounts), and catastrophic things (rear subframe, rear sway bar mounts). since it is on one side, flex disc unlikely imho.
