My 1998 Toyota Corolla LE has a thumping noise on the back passenger side. Everything seems tight.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It thumps worse on rough roads but does thump some even on smooth roads.  
Does this car have body mounts that I should check?  If not, what could it be?

Check to see if a strut or strut mount is broken, loose or damaged.

The struts/shocks top mounting bolts are accessed from the trunk. Have a look there also, pull the cover over spare up . And it has a torsion bar, make sure both ends are in their mounts and even torsion bar not broken
