Creaking/Groaning Noise From Rear Driver's Side

Good day everyone,

Today was the coldest day it's been thus far this season, about 0 degrees F after wind chill. As such, I got in the car this evening and could hear a creaking/groaning noise coming from the rear driver's side going over bumps. It literally sounded like the sound a wooden floorboard would make in a haunted house.

In the days leading up to this, I had noted a slight clunk in the same area going over really deep bumps, but, I thought it could have been the mudflap banging against the muffler.

Only can hear it over bumps. On smooth surfaces, nothing. Any theories here and should I be worried? (is it safe to be driving it?)

Thanks.

with it only happening going over bumps IMO leaning towards suspension of the car being cause of the noise

Today was a little better temperature wise. I took the car out for a quick run around the block and the noise was nowhere to be found. Could this be a bushings thing?

it seems like the rear wheel hub/bearing assembly is shot

it is easy to change if your mechanically inclined and they are cheap to purchase new.
