Rear Knocking / Clunk

I am new to this forum and was hoping you might be able to help me with what seems to be an expensive problem with my car, a 05 WRX PPP.

The problem involves a clunk when stopping coming from the rear passenger side or middle. Associated with this is a wobble when stopping. There is a slight grinding sound as well.

My garage MKG3000 in Twickenham London says that there is a problem with the rear shocks but I have been asked to go in tomorrow to demonstrate the problem on a test drive. They reckon £1000 for the shocks.

I have read that shocks are problematic with this car. Any tips on a good type to buy or should I got with the garage option?

Could it be bushes or diff? not sure if this would induce the one sided wobble and sound.

Any ideas?

Is there any subaru specialists around your way to give you a 2nd opinion, I agree a pair of rear shocks from subaru are daft money but there are cheaper/better options out there if they are the problem.

Sounds like the rear shocks have gone. Had 2 sets fitted under warranty by dealer, then got fed up and changed to AST coilovers.

Speak to a subaru specialist as there are other options available.
blah blah blah
