Other than RSMs, which are likely at least part of the problem...

Do both sides clunk or only one side?
Were the new shocks actually 'new'?
What kind?
If the shocks installed were not identical than the ones removed it could be the cause. Maybe they installed a non-xi part?
Also check rear spring/spring pad is seated properly
These cars notoriously break rear springs, worth a look
