Clunking from Rear.. Rear Axle Support Bushing?

Hey guys, anyone here ever change the rear axle bushings on their balt?

I got some clunking going on and I think its these bushings. I just changed struts so I know it isnt that, so these are next on my list.

Anyone else have this issue?

Check if the bolts going though the bushings have play. If so you can grab the rear wheel and move it around. Like so:
