This could be many things and we don't have the actual sound that you're hearing for a reference. Here are a few more ideas to look for. -Check fuel tank straps (when tank is empty) haven't loosened. -Check rear door hinges and fastener. -Check rear wheels for wobble or extra axle play. -Check tie rod ends/linkage (if sway bar present). -Check brake lines to rear of vehicle. -Check spare tire assembly and fastner. -Check for extra play in the rear leaf springs.
