Wheel Bearing Clunk

Trying to narrow down some clunking noises from the rear of the car. Rear is a S60

Currently have verified all suspension is tight and no signs of parts hitting chassis.

-Pressing down on car rear does not create noise
-Pushing side to side does make clunk
-Pushing rear tire side wall does make clunk, and feels like something is moving.

So, thinking perhaps wheel bearings are shot? Being as they look to suck to R&R, any tests I can do prior to that?

Panhard bushing or end links?

Get the tricycle rider to lay underneath and see if he can hear where its coming from

Panhard looks to be good conduit and tight, end links on drag bar are tight as well.

Possible side-to-side play in axles? Is it c-clip or c-clip eliminated?

Attempted to change the fluid in rear today, and hit a snag.

Does anyone know off hand what size the fill/drain plug is? Seems to be smaller than 3/8

Is it square? 99% of the time you can stick a 3/8 ratchet extension in there. Odd for it to be smaller.

To bump this up.

Replaced pax side shock with new CE piece, no luck.

Still clunks worse than my truck over bumps.

when you make the clunk sound, do you have someone looking under the car to see what clunks?
