I have an odd clunking/clanging noise coming from the rear end when I hit bumps. My pass. rear tie rod was bad, replaced it but the noise persists. I'm at a loss here...

Any thoughts/suggestions?

could be a broken spring. How do the other control arms on that corner look?

When your turning do u feel unstable? , if so that could b suspension related jack up your car and a pry bar and start shaking to see wats loose, it could also be your differential have u changed your fluid, how does the car shift

Turns out its just a shock, ordered a set of GR2's from Rock Auto, they were shipped within an hour!
