Wj Noise under rear passenger wheel

Greetings!

I recently started to get this rattle when going over bumps on rear passenger wheel area. I replaced the shocks so I'm confident its not this. The muffler also looks well secured. Any other ideas what it might be? It happens when going over bumps with speed and almost seems like a slight rattle. Could it be the sway bar? Many years back I believe this was upgraded. Just curious if others have experienced.

Thanks all.

It's the aftermarket shocks, clunk in the rear is caused because the bolts are smaller than the bolt sleeves.

This is what I used to fix it when mine did it.

Aftermarket shock bushings are narrower than factory. Most people just place 2 or so washers in between the shock bushing and mount...that's what I did, and it has worked well.

I tried that first and it didn't work for me they still rattled, I ended up buying the sleeves and bolts.

Had the same issue! All I did was back the bolt out a little and put some thread locker on em'. Then used a breaker bar and tightened the hell out of them. That was a tear ago and haven't had an issue since.

Could be the right rear parking break assembly. I just had the issue. You will need to remove the rotor to check but i am sure that might be it.

If you're not fixing it, you're not driving a Jeep.

What about the swaybar endlinks or even the evap canister? The mounting plates rust out and it could be knocking around in there...

Thanks all, gonna start with the bolt/bolt sleeves with the aftermarket shocks because it started shortly after those were installed.
