Default another question about noise from the rear!

I recently installed AGXs, Prodrive springs, and Group N mounts on my 02 WRX. Since then, I've been getting a faint clunk, occasionally, often as not when I am backing up, from the general rear area (can't tell if it is right or left).

I'm going to have access to jacks and tools tommorrow and I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions as to what to look for in the back.

I've done my searching on noises but there is so much about wagons or swaybar installs that I can't tell if this question has been discussed before.

Thanks!

Make sure that the tapered washer is seated correctly on the end of the shaft. While you are at it, make sure that you torque down the three strut top bolts properly (since you will have to remove the strut to check the tapered washer).

Before you do that, check your rear sway bar and make sure it did not flip when you did your install.

Thanks. Those three nuts should be 14 ft-lbs, right?
