I just purchased a certified used 09 Optima, Very well maintained and low mi. Just noticed a clunk on the rear R tire side when hitting some bumps and at times when turning. Almost sounded like something rolling in trunk (still did it when I removed everything from trunk). Took to the dealer and put it on a lift. Stated could not find problem (blamed factory coil springs). Also just noticed the rear brakes squeaking but this may be unrelated.

Thanks

Sounds like gas sloshing around in the tank. Mine does when the tank is full-3/4. It will do it on turns and on stop and go.

I would check the sway bar links and bushings. Also, check the dust boots on the shocks to see if they loose. I have only seen it happen on one car(mine), but it sounded horrible, like something vital was falling off, even though it really wouldn't hurt anything.
