Rear diff is in the centre anyhow, so the knocking noise would be unlikely to be focused on just the one side of the car. I'd say shocks too.

Take a look at them before you replace them. See if there's any fluid coming out.

Re: Rear Diff Making Noise

Hi
does it make the noise turning tight-ish corners ? and maybe it's ok for the first 15-20 mins of driving from cold then appears it's ugly head ?
if so its your diff m8t - mine done exactly the same thing turning left hand corners sounded like the pass side shock was about to drop off - had the diff changed and everything is spot on now
Hope this helps ya..
