Clunking noise - rear pass side

So I installed KW V1s a few month back and all has been great. A weeks ago tho, I started noticing a moderate clunking noise when driving around town and hitting small bumps in the road. Sounds like the rear pass side.
Could it be a blown shock?

Did you buy them new or used?

I'm sure you've done this already.....check shock mounts? Especially rear upper?

A clunk is more likely the mount than the shock itself, but double check it is completely tightened down and all other bushings are in good shape

Checked the mounts. All tight!
I'm not positive it's the shock cause it only seems to clunk around town when riding slower
