I've got a rattle or thumping noise in the rear of the vehicle that occurs every time I go over a small bump in the road. There sound is not bad when I have 4 adults and 4 sets of golf clubs in the back. It's real noticeable when it is just me and the wife. I've been trying to figure this problem out for months. I've done the following:

. Checked the exhaust for any contact or hanger issues. OK
. Replaced the shocks
. Checked the springs. OK
. Emptied the spare tire compartment and tested. No issues there
. Dropped the sway bar and tested. No issues there
. Checked for any loose things in the back, under seats, etc. No issues there
. Checked the fuel tank straps. No issues there
. Check rear doors and lift gate. No issues there

Now I'm down to just a few more options (I think). One of the things I'm suspecting now is the rear upper control arm bushing. Is there a way to test it to see if that's the issue? Also how hard is it to replace.

Are there any other ideas out there?
