Weird clicking noise in left rear???

I have this noise that sounds as if something is loose, when I hit a bump or push against my jeep to rock it back and forth. It sounds like its coming from the top of the shock/top of coil spring area. Here's what Ive done so far with no fix...

1) Made sure all bolts and nuts were tight
2) Greased everything
3) Rotated the coil spring 180 degrees
4) Unhooked the shock completly
5) Took out the plastic splash gaurd to make sure nothing was in behind it

After doing all of this I still have this mystery clicking, I am beginng to think that it might be the cheap Rough Country Coils that are my problem.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Sound's like you may have a bad trackbar bushing. Is it a clunking sound?

That would be my first quess also. Or the bolt may just be loose. Mine comes loose on the axle side sometimes.
