95 grand cherokee laredo

Does anyone know what this issue is? i just got this laredo v8 95' everything works and runs great but one minor problem every little bump i hit i hear a clunking/knocking sound in the rear. the rear for sure! and when i grab the tire and yank back and forward it feels almost loose(the tire itself is not) and the knocking sound persists. someone help this 19 year old who wants the full feel of his jeep. thanks.

I'd grab some wrenches, climb under your jeep and tighten all the bolts(mainly on the suspension) that you can. If that doesn't help, it may be a worn bushing. To find where, just shake the various suspension pieces to look for what's loose.

it's probably the exhaust hitting some where when you go over bumps.

Your mysterious noise is probably the rear liftgate. I also have a 95 Grand and
it has the same rattle, I check everything and it is my liftgate, although I dont
know how to fix it. i tried to adjust the stops but that didnt help. But listen closely
with the radio OFF and when you here it, it should sound like its coming from inside,
if its the same, but if it sounds like its coming from underneath your jeep, and its a solid sounding
clunck then check all your suspension components.
