It is the sleeve inside the bushing.

I have the same noise, but I dont have aftermarket shocks. Been this way since I bought it over 2 weeks ago (used '00 GC). At first I thought it was my sway bar links, but I replaced them, and the noise is still there...

Mine sounds like the e-brake shows are clanking up against the dust cover on the rear rotors. If it is your shock, let me know, then I'll replace mine..

Well it is a cheap fix so you might as well replace the sleeves and see if it cures it. Go to kevinsoffroadparts.com and he has a sleeve replacement kit. Take your shocks out and push out the existing sleeves and put in Kevins. His have thicker walls and they eliminate the klunk. Well worth it.
