Rear clunck/knock when turning right...

Hi guys, looking for some input on the possible cause of a what sounds to be rear passenger-side clunck/knock when I take a right turn.

The knock is a single knock (not continuous) and does seem like it could possibly be metal on metal. It doesn't happen while taking a left or driving straight.

I have torqued down my front and rear suspension to spec, just to eliminate that as a possibility.

Any input and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also if more information is needed just let me know.

2 things to check:
The frame side track bar bolt could be hitting your lower bump stop spacer if you have one or

If you have installed control arms your rear passenger spring could be making contact with the track bar

Are you stock? If not, check your rear pass. side coil to see if it is contacting your trackbar. Common issue.

Actually what I was describing should only happen when doing a left turn when the pass rear coil compresses. Only other thing I could think of would be a loose nut/bolt on one of the sway bar links
