knocking noise from rear!

My 2006 model year 2.5 sti has started to occasionally make a noise from the passenger side rear!
The noise only happens at very low speeds only, and sounds like a suspension fault, maybe a shock absorber issue?
The noise seems to high up in the car at top of strut area.
I jacked the car up and had a long bar under the wheel working the suspension, but no visable wear in anything!!
Exhaust back box all secure too
Totally standard car no mods
Has anyone else had some thing similar? is it a common fault?
any help appreciated
I think i have previously read its a common fault but does it generally apply to all years and models???
