That could be anything!!

I would have to start with the simple things first.
Check what is in your trunk. Is the spare tire secured? Jack? etc...
Try removing all the interior body panels (plastic) to see if it was just the panels rubbing together - they tend to do that after so many years!

Then get into the mechanical stuff.

Struts: Check to see if they are leaking. See if there is a lot of grease on them.
Springs: Check their rebound. Should only bounce once before settling.

My 2 cents,
If you want to replace everything in the rear suspension, that is all well and fine. But, chances are that the root of the problem is with the rear strut's top mount. These are prone to wear and can make the car seem like it's falling apart in the rear end.

Babygirl: Take your car to a trustworthy mechanic, hand him the keys and when he's done pay the bill.

Thats the only advice I can give you.

I would say when you change the rear struts that you should also change the rear strut mounts about $40-$50 ea.

Just think for as long as these cars have been around, that some mechanics @- think its "rocket science" to get some basic $hit done.
