    I hear a sort of loose rumbling sound while going over light rough roads, sounds like something bumping underneath the back of the car!

Front Right Tire Making Bad Rattleing Sound

Chrysler products as a whole are not well known for quality front end components ( I own one ) I would check the upper and lower ball joints and tie rod ends for worn or damaged parts. If no satisfaction here consider returning to where it was repaired and have them re-inspect thier work. All of us in the industry do are best but none are perfect.
