Could be a corroded pipe, could be a loose sphere, but could equally be a worn through cylinder. You won't know until you look.

As Defender says, impossible to say without examination.

Could also be failure of the rear height corrector as that unit is mounted on the o/s.

Good news is that the main failure areas of the hp pipes is on the n/s as they pass over the subframe, so likely (but not definitely) not that.
