Strange clunk!

So I was pulling out of my driveway last night (in reverse) and when got to the bottom of my driveway and rolled over my curb to hit the street me and my buddy standing outside heard a loud clunk. It happened right as my passenger side tire rolled over the curb, sounded like something broke. The jeep rides fine though. This isnt the first time this has happened. I dont even know where to look first. Any ideas?
Thanks.

Check your swing arm bolts too. I had one loosten up after installing a skid and it would clunk on occasion. Retorqued the bolts and all is well.
