Shocks are simple to remove and reinstall. One bolt on top and one on the bottom. You can easily do this at your home garage. However struts are a different matter. I suggest you have them replace by a professional.

It very well could be the strut.
smaller chance could be the CV axle.
Also have the splash guards/heat shields checked to make sure they are all tight in place.

Pretty sure your car has struts on the rear and the shock function is part of the strut. Replacing struts is more difficult than replacing shocks and they should be replaced in pairs.

You could have a worn rear strut which will need to be replaced. Also check some very minor things such as a loose muffler. And, a major ailment could be an extremely worn axle assembly or worn rear end assembly. Also check for things such as loose spring hangers as any small insignificant seeming part that is loose can cause rackets and odd noises and could run into catastrophic failure.

dry sway bar bushings are the cheapest and most likely fix to this problem. however given the mileage and likely age of the struts on the vehicle wouldnt hurt to replace them even if it doesnt fix your noise.
