Default update on that mysterious rear knocking noise

I had to check it myself so heres the update.

1)not the spare tire bracket or screw. I totally took that assembly out.

2)not the gas tube since I secure it already

3)not head liner or whatever

4)NOTHING I can find is bumping into other part or even loose

5)even the bellcrank looks OK the bushing looks OK but thristed just a little I can't seem to really tell if it went bad. I also pulled on it pretty hard and it only move slightly

6) the whole wattlink seem OK unless it's a busted ball joint but if thats the case I can move it around when I pull it.

I still suspect the ballcrank is damage internally or one of those arms with balljoint is F.

I don't know and I'm VERY VERY upset at this car right now.

Zero in on the sway bar. I put in a rear and got a clunk & also erratic handling at times - I got under again and tightened everything up, and problem disappeared. All bolts have to be TIGHT!
Particularly the clamp that holds bar to axle - apparently on mine, being loose allowed it to move side-to side.
