Default Rear suspension needs to shut up

Hey guys, need some help with this issue.

There are three symptoms that need fixing:

1. Rear axle clunking on every rough road

2. Clicking sound when braking. (probably related to #1, heard around 0:22)

3. Squeak on bumps (think it's joints or lubes)

Replaced items: RTABs+limiter, lower ball joints (both left and right)
Suspects: Both axles, differential, diff/subframe bushing

Current problems:
-Poor corner-in (possibly rear struts as well?) but manageable corner-out. Front is rock solid. This could be fixed with some aggressive neg camber because I'm running basically stock.

-Bad front brakes (rotor needs replacing)

-Whenever I lift off the throttle, the car shakes back and forward(more than needed) like a raped ape.

Would be nice to hear your thoughts!

Default Re: Rear suspension needs to shut up

I would also share that this metallic clunking stops completely if I apply brakes while traveling forward, and the noise is only heard from the rear. It was just the left side at first but started to develop on the right side as well.
