I have noticed that when I pull away out of a junction, change down at slow speed & in fact most times at lower speeds when I release the clutch (regardless of what gear) - there is a sharp "Crack" from the rear right of the car - around the boot area. It is not deafening but is easy to hear. It is not so distinct when the car is warmed up and not so also - when I have a passenger. It is louder with the window open (Perhaps obviously).
I initially thought that it was just an old car creaking. It is definitely something more sinister. That said, it has been making the noise since I got it, it does not seem to be getting worse and I am buggered if I can locate the source!
Any ideas will be kindly received

Chasing down noises is a perilous, misleading process at best. Don't assume anything is the rule I follow. Good Luck!

Try the outer wishbone bushes- or it might be that the bolt clamping the outer end to the hub is loose/rusted in etc.
