clunk in rear suspension when i hit any bump

I have a 92 accord lx sedan which I have lowered on adjustabe coilover sleeves. When I hit any kind of bump in the road there is load clunk I think it the upper control arm smacking the top of the wheel well, sounds like it going to come through the wheel well into the trunk. I was wondering what a fix for this.

Just raise the car up a little to stop the control arm from hitting.

did you trim down the bump stops on the shocks or completely remove them?

I had the same problem the bump stops just tore up after a while so I just bought some energy suspension end link replacement bushings and I cut it vertical then I made a slot in the middle around the whole thing to allow for a zip tie to keep it together and not fall off. Or you could just take your whole shock off and put the bushing threw the top so you can ease your mind

Don't forget to check all the bolts for tightness check bushings as well. You may also want to look into the strut mount. When mine went out it made a bunch of loud noise each and every bump. Location is about the same. GL
