Don't spring for shocks until you are absolutely, positively SURE it  
is not just the bushings in the lower arm of the rear suspension.
That is what clunks in my rig have always been, here in bumpy dirt  
road Vermont. Lots cheaper, and it will burn you up to replace the  
shocks and still have it clunk.
