Could be just the mount also. Only way to tell for sure is to visually inspect it once removed from the car. On these cars, you can remove the mount and spring without a spring compressor, but I don't recommend you try it if you have never done it before. Might be better off taking it in to the shop for inspection.

Exactly what Mr. Dummas said!!! HA HA I have a lot of experience w/ cavaliers and when you hit a big pot hole w/ your rear tires it will make a sound b/c the shock so to speak just sets back there w/ little support. So it bangs around that is your noise. If you want have it checked out by a friend or garage to be safe but that is probably what it is.

Yes, it is a known problem. I seperate the spring from the shocks all the time without a compressor, but I don't recommend you do it for safety reasons.
