To properly diagnose the probable problem, record a video/with sound when you are driving. Then post it up here so bro at ZTH can listen to the noise.
Kinda hard to imagine what "tung tung" sound is...

Try jack-up the car and check the undercarridge where the sound come from. Some sound can be traced if the car is off ground, but some make sound only be detected if it is on load.

Yup, sometimes off the ground no more load no more sound....:smokin:

tung, tung, could be the springs. Probably the top mount no grease. I had that before in my previous car. Take out grease it, no more sound but not sure it is same problem....:driver:

Since you will need to take out to grease anyway, do overall inspection, change the rubber mounting if you have to.....:driver:

If it moves even when pushed using hands then need to change the mounting.
Sometimes the rubber is still good but the top bearing is worn out.
Only way to test this is to remove the absorber and test the mount for freeplay.
With the car on the ground, we just cant generate enough force to replicate the problem.

I am about to replace the mount on my Waja if my pocket permit by today.
The rubber is still good but the bearing is worn out so tuk2 sound on rough road.

TS, is the car modified in any way? Mods (on the suspension, bushing, using wide, bigger wheels, poorly repair work, etc) can cause problems as you have mentioned.

My VR ones quite easy to see as most of the rubber mounting can be seen from engine bay. When worn it will harden and fine cracks will appear....:rolleyes:

Latest update, i just change absorber mounting. When they dismantle my absorber i see got scratch on my spring coil, spring coil rubbing car body. Sound still persist. I already try to pull the spring out to avoid hitting by lift the car using jack and pull the spring out, sound still have but lesser. I don't want to dismantle again and pay for alignment

You change mounting should ask mechanic what is wrong?:confused:
