Also, check the rear trailing arm bushings....they are prone to fail..... when the bushings fail, the trailing arm knocks against the rear subframe of the car........ links below:

Symptoms of bad trailing arm bushings include side movement of the rear end under acceleration, general looseness of the rear over bumps, and abnormal tire wear. These bushings will start wearing out after about 50,000mi, give or take. As you'll see in this DIY, I made a special puller/press tool for dealing with this stubborn bushing, but it wasn't good enough for removal. So I had to go butcher style, which is an option many choose instead of paying out your ass for the tool.

if u have after market wheels it may be the lug hitting the e-break. thats happened 2 me. if thats the case get it out quick or u can shred the e-break set up. other then that check ur bushings.
