Soft cracking noise noted on rear suspension on E90

I bought my 335D 2010 used at 60k miles and noticed a soft craking noise when i drive over speed bumps or small dips as if the arm suspensions were dislocated everytime i drive them... i check the nuts and they're tight ... is that commonly seen in 335D's ? or E90s ?

I noticed the same thing when I bought mine a few years back. Turned out to be a loose rear endlink. Tightened back to spec and the noise was gone.

no it wasnt part of the breaking system ...

I heard it more as if one of the suspension arms were dislocating everytime I would drive over a speedbump or dip hole... just a soft crack or pop.
