loud banging and clunking noise from rear driverside wheel consistently and worsens with turns. can feel the this through the seat

My car has 146443 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The noise could be suspension, wheel bearing, or axle/differential related if you have all wheel drive. All of those possibilities have to be examined to pinpoint the origin of the noise. If you request a vehicle noise diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will definitely find the origin of the noise though. With the mechanic’s advice and explanation, you can decide how best to handle it including having the mechanic repair the fault right there at your location. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
