Default 1990 camry Struts?

I have a 1990 Camry LE 4cyl and i hear a "clonking" noise in the back when I
hit bumps. I assume I need to replace the struts. What else could it be?
It sounds like an old taxi! Thanks

I don't know if the back have em, but in the front I once had a sway
bushing go out. It sounded horrible! Random clunking noise like
something was going back and forth and hitting something.

400

I had that problem a simple 15$ bushing was the cause, But at 15 yrs
replace struts as well.

Change the rear stabilizer bar bushings first.
Then decide if you need or want to do anything further.
If you do the work yourself (four bolts - fairly simple), should run
around $20.
Recommended:
Add silicone grease to extend life and minimize squeaking.
Silicone grease is also sold in small tubes as "dielectric grease",
around $3.
