Hard knock under right passenger

Could be a lot of things. If you happen to have a GoPro you can rig it up to examine what may be causing that noise during drive time.

Best bet is to have a shop figure it out by putting it on a rack and doing some digging, Goodyear has been good to me with regards to those sorts of services. They will give you a price to fix and you can say no or fix it etc... Minimal charge for that service if any.

Make sure everything is tight down there. Control arm bolts and such. Anything that is moving with suspension. Good luck finding what it is!!

Wheel bearing, control arms bushings, track bar bushings, loose caliper, tie rod bushings, sway bar mounts and links. These things make many clunks for many reasons.

I second the engine mount. I redid my mounts and my rattle went away. I posted about it last week if you looks at my posts you can watch a video and see if it sounds similar.

I had a terrible rattle and sounds on each pothole from my driver side wheel well.

it turned out to be a loose top nut that holds the inner lining of the fender flare - plastic was hitting the frame and I swear if felt as the axle fell off.

1.5 turns of the nut and it was all quiet
