Default Phantom clunk

Has anybody here experienced a clunk emanating from the left rear? It is not the spare, jack or exhaust. The bushings in the rear appear to be good and have no visable signs of moving.
It will occur during medium braking with forward motion after having been in reverse and braked. I am thinking bushing but I dont see anything obvious.

Do you have rear disc brakes? Have you had any service done lately? Might be a loose caliper.

If you are hearing the clunks while going over bumps, it's more than likely a punched shock.
