Popping noise?

It seems that when I go over larger bumps I hear a popping noise coming from the right rear of the car. Any ideas on what it could be?
The first time I heard it I thought I got a flat tire.
Thanks.

also check for subframe failure because it is common for 92-95 cars

I just replaced my RSM's this spring with E46 M3 RSM's and I added the Z3 reinforcement plates.
Is the subframe failure only on the 92-95 model years because mine is a 96.
Thanks for the help.
