Re: rear end issue

A bump shouldn't have caused any problem. The best way would be to raise the rear on stands and runit to see what's going on.

Re: rear end issue

I hit bumps in the road everyday. Thank you Canada and your frost heaved roads!!!

...it could even be a wheel bearing. 66K is when they start to go. However rear wheel bearings generally last longer than the front.

Or, your spare tire was stuck a bit thanks to the heat/thaws and has lost some air and needs to be refilled and tightened.
