96 Es300 Rear End Clunking

Recommended Posts

My 1996 ES with almost 170k just started clunking over bad pavement. I know it's not the rear sway bar, renewed bushings and connectors with a new Whiteline upgrade. New wheel bearing also. My former Toyota service manager/savvy work buddy says it's probably upper shock mount; I couldn't get anything to clunk when I put it up on a jackstand and thumped up with a hammer on the tire to replicate the condition. This car is going to be sold soon, so I'm not excited about replacing rear shocks/mounts/boots/isolators. I've checked in the trunk, nothing bumping around with my spares and tools there :>)

Any ideas?
