Low speed knocking/juddering from rear

Hi I have just brought a 2004 wrx sti and it has a knocking/popping noise from the rear and also seems to bounce/judder when it happens.

I have read that this could be the struts but can get me head round how thus happens on even ground so I fear this could be more serious.

I could be reversing out of a parking spot and it knocks and it judders slightly.

I would also like to find a good garage in or around Southampton all I've found so far is Sparshatts so it will be going there to start with.

Any advice would be welcome

Thanks
Barry

No DCCD and both foward and reverse tend to hear it from both sides.

Sparshatts are expensive mate, take it to Gary at North Motor Company, Holden Farm near Cheriton on the A272, he is a Subaru specialist (used to have a Subaru dealership) and a lot cheaper. Tel no. is 01962771331. My struts sounded a bit like that, I got a new set of KYB struts from Camskill and all is good now.
