if you take the back seat out you can see the ground through about a 5"X4" hole

My gripe with my 2000 is the clunking sound coming from the rear drivers side. I have replaced shocks, shock mounts, and rear trailing arm and its still there.

LOL. So true my 2000 SLE has like 200k plus 400 more miles and it used to do that when i got it it used to make this wierd clunking sound xD but it left by itself. My bonneville is really wierd its like its alive. I had the motor mounts make the engine jump a good 5 inches and the back used to make that clunking sound and the water pump used to leak... but all these things stopped and the car feels good. Except for the water pump i had to replace it. oh and i hate the cup holders and the battery being under my seat... i never understood how to take the top of the back seat off.. but it comes off by luck.

Default Cup holders, I wish!

My Bonnie (1987) didn''t even come with any cupholders, but I still love it. My biggest gripe is the insanely LOUD fuel pump below 1/4 tank, I don't know how it hasn't frapped out yet. Cheers
