"clung"noise when take a small bump ..

when I pass over a speed bump at low speed of course I hear a "clung"noise from the rear. it seems it's coming from the rear driver side wheel. I removed the wheel and check the bolt of the schock ( I installed some Ome schocks not long ago) but it was nice and tight. I didn't see anything in particular that could be wrong except this. those rubber thing look really dry. could the noise come from here ? how difficult it is to change them if I need to change them ?

Possibly that, but not likely. If it bumps it should be pretty sloppy. Check the trac bar as tha tis more common.

right now it's too hot outside (over 100F) so i'll check it tomorrow am early.
yes there are OME schocks. I like them, but I had real crappy one before so any schock would have been an improvement anyway lol.
