REAR END CLUNKING GOING OVER SMALL BUMPS

Toyota Corolla

I have 1 1993 Toyota Corolla with over 200,000 miles on it. Recently it has started making a severe clunking noise from the rear passenger side when going over even small bumps in the road and the ride has become very rough. When I push down on the rear driver side there is bounce. When I push down on the rear passenger side there is no give at all. What's gone wrong?

Check the strut bolts, and the control arm bushings and bolts.

Jack up the car and see if there is any play in the wheel (vertical and horizontal) by grasping the wheel.
