Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Rattle or knock sounds like it is coming from area of rear wheel on passenger side. Replaced shocks & rear stabilizer arms. Noise is not constant, but seems to be related to multiple bumps encountered on paved road in a very short distance--regardless of speed. Sounds like a loose bushing, but everything seems tight and no movement can be found on inspection.
Check the rear axle upper link for bad bushings mostely at the body end

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
