Post Advice for possible suspension noise

Hey guys, I bought a used 08 gt a few months back, and I've been doing some maintenance on it whenever I'm free from work, and now I'm trying to tackle this popping sound that comes from the rear of the car, but I'm not sure where to start looking. The pop comes from the rear passenger side, and I only hear it when I go over a nasty bump, or when I accelerate quickly from a dead stop. I would appreciate any advice that can point me in the right direction.

charleyhorse91, sounds like the proverbial "dry grommet" problem. This is a ongoing pain in the rear. You will have to drop anything with a grommet and lube it liberally. The only product I use is,

Energy Suspension 9.11104 Formula 5 Prelube 8 Oz. Grease.

Check your shock mount in the trunk, on that side. Tighten it up, see if it goes away.
Shocks are easy to replace...

If not, then move on to the lower control arms...
