Strange noise

Hey guys. I had a quick question for all of you and I realize it might be a bit obscure. Whenever driving, regardless of speed, If I hit any sort of bump on the road i can hear a wobbling noise coming from my rear right wheel well. The car drives fine, and doesnt shake, but it just feels loose back there. I tightened down the strut, but that really didnt change anything. Any ideas? How will I really know if a strut is bad? Is this something suspension related?

Check wheel studs, shock absorber and exhaust hangers.

check the white plastic suspension link. Put your hand on the top of the tire sidewall on the inboard side, then bring it down and inward. The "socket" ends of these things can be worn horribly. They are about $6 and can be changed in under a minute.
