Default rear end clunking please help

Hi i am new to the forums and I want to ask for some advice. i have a 08 ram 1500 5.7 SLT 4x4 and every once in a while when i got over a bump or train tracks I can hear a click or clunk on the rear end. I only noticed when the radio went quiet because its normally cranked up way to much . So when the the truck was sloped and off for like 5 hrs and its 49 Fahrenheit right now, i went to the back tire and just started pushing on the top back and forth and I can hear a major clunking noise from somewhere in there. I proceeded to torque the rims to 120 foot lbs via torque wrench and the problem didn't change a bit. The rims are aftermarket rims Ultra Motorsports Gauntlet rims with coopers at3 tires, but sense the front tires doesn't cluck i don't think its the rims. All of this without 4 wheel drive engaged and on level ground. and advice would be much appreciated.
