Clunking in the rear is probably going to be rear tie rod assembies (camber links) and / or the rear control arm's front bushings.

Jack up the back end, grab the tire at 12 and 6 o'clock... and try to move it back and forth.? Any movement should show in the camber links.

Likewise... grab at 9 and 3 o'clock.? Movement, if it is there, should show up in the front control arm bushings.

Bushings, bushings, bushings:

Rear trapezoidal links, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings (what does
the HSRSB use for bushing material- polyurethane?), rear subframe bushings,
etc. Probably should do the front end as well.

2nd on the Bilstein revalve.

That will make a big difference in how the car feels, in terms of that
subjective "tightness."
