Rear end knocking noise solved, thanks.
Thanks to this information board and two guys who responded, I saved a lot of money and having to take my bike in. I use a special waxy spray on my chain, and this stuff must have built up over time and made the chain not flexible. This made the chain hit the front sproket guard and make a terrible noise that could have been from anywhere. I never would have ascertained that this was the cause of the problem without the response from the group. I lubed the chain up and the sound was gone instantly.
