Default Rear clunk mystery

So i've had this rear right clunk since I bought my civic a month ago. The guy told me it was a strut so I replaced it. Didn't fix it. Replaced two lower control arm bushings, and the trailing pivot bushing. All the other bushings were fine. I can't figure out what it could be any help would be great!

I checked and it's pretty secure. It sounds like something is hitting the strut tower. A mechanic at honda told me the strut mount could be bent so i'm going to try that

Did you have a chance to pull that rear shock off and look at the upper mount?

Stop by tonight if you'd like and I'll take a ride-along to see if I can help diagnose.

I did today and you'll never guess what I found. The guy that owned the car before me must have taken the strut assembly apart and when he re assembled it he left out two of the bushings, one in the rear and front! I used the one I got from you and right away the clunk was gone! Thanks for the mount man i'll stop buy soon with some cash

Oh awesome you found the problem. I'm surprised that the Honda tech didn't notice that when they replaced your shock. I'll be home around 6pm tonight.
