I am sure this question has been asked before but I couldn't find what I would looking for. I wanted to change my rear shock mounts. When ever my car goes over a bump I hear clunk sound like metal hit metal. It's not that loud but it's there. I have changed all the arm assemblies, I'll attach the pictures of what I bought. I have found the front KYB mounts but can't find the rear KYB mounts. Megazip has the mounts but they are very expensive. If anyone can help with the rear shock mounts that would be much appreciated.ImageImage

The biggest cause for noise over bumps in the rear is the bar to frame bushing. Part number 466-4157L00. These list for under $13 each. This could be temporally shimmed with a nickel. The next most common noise maker would be the shock itself or mountings not tight. The next piece that I find is the top rubber mount part number 419-2057L00 list is $30. This could be shimmed with an O-ring temporarily . Next part would be your upper support bracket which houses this bushing and that would be because of corrosion and the pocket getting bigger than it should be. There is left and right. The left one part number is 4191257L00 the right one is 4191157L00 each list for $150 they could to be shimmed with an O-ring to confirm . I hope this helps.

Thank you so much that was help in knowing what I need to change. One the thing though, the first part number that you mentioned, I could not find that anywhere in megazip... So I am going to attach a few pictures for you to see that do you mean this part.... ImageImage

No not that. Image
This. No. 2. Earlier I gave you the wrong part number . You need 2 of these. They are the same for both sides

I have Moog polyurethane rear sway bar bushings that have remained quiet and outlasted the OE rubber bushings. For the front end, creaking was addressed by changing the sway bar end links.
