Well check all of them, bushings squeak more then anything else. Check for play in all of your suspension parts. Which side does it come from? Does it have to be driving or can you make it "clunk" by pushing down on it?

Have you done anything to your shocks? I once had the top nuts of the front shocks come loose. lots of rattling from up front.

Yes replaced last year about 4000 miles ago with new RS5000s they should be good.Only makes noise at slow speeds on a dirt road or a uneven surface ,can almost feel it in the steering wheel. No loose play but you can sure hear it .Thanks.
