Suspension clunking

I have a noise coming from my rear suspension but have yet to figure out what it is. I have a tein ss setup and just replaced my rear shock mounts with a rogue engineering set. I thought replacing these would fix the issue but its still there. I spoke with the mechanic and he said the other bushings look good. Is there anything else that could cause this? Sub-frame damage? Bad shocks? Any help would be appreciated.

For rear make sure you check the diff rear mount if this is happening when accelerating or decelerating, but if that is not the case then you are looking at the subframe...mostly left side.

It sounds like it is coming from the rear right side mostly. I had new RSMs put in last week hoping this would fix the issue.

Have you figured out what it was? Did changing the RSM's take care of it?
I have a similar problem.
