check your drivetrain. It can be your differential mount or driveshaft CV joint or some other moving parts.

If it's sort of a not-too-loud fairly high pitched Tink! then my money would be on the driveshaft; although sadly I can't tell you exactly which specific part of the driveshaft.

Also check for play in both rear axles cv-joints and the driveshaft cv-joint as well.. it will be very slight but it will be felt through chassis.

Also diff could have slight play in it.. I have poly bushings everywhere and the rear definitely feels clunky even after all the above fixes because sound travels from subframe to car's frame so well with polyurethane.
