09 128i clunking noise from right rear wheel

So I have no idea when this started happening but; as of recent whenever I'm driving I hear squeaking when turning on slight curves and clunking on sharp turns or in reverse. I know it's coming from that wheel because whenever the car is parked I can rock it back and fourth and hear the clunking from that wheel. Any ideas what it could be? Trying to figure it out since I fix things myself and can't afford a dealer on minimum wage salary

Take a look at the upper and lower shock mounts first.

Inspect all rubber mounts in the rear: Upper and lower shock mounts, and the upper and lower spring pads.

It's the "reverse' part that is throwing me. First thought was lug bolts loose, then brakes, then suspension. A noise caused by change in load via turning could be explained by all of those items, but just going backward would not.

I'd guess sway bar links or maybe an axle with a little too much play in it.
