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.
Thankyou

Its not your rims. Its somewhere in your suspension components. Check your sway bar and links.

Sounds like a wheel bearing.
Hopefully not in the rear end....
