2002 WS6 Rear Suspension Problem

Anyone have any suggestions for resolving a loud thunk from the right rear wheel of my 2002 T/A WS6?  It occurs whenever going over a significant bump or pothole in the road - a resounding thump that can be very loud, depending on speed, and sounds an awful lot like bottoming out.

I've had the rear shocks and coil springs replaced, and both of them improved the ride quit a bit, but only reduced, didn't eliminate the thump.  Still occurs at anything over 25 MPH.

Neither my regular mechanic nor a suspension specialty shop have been able to identify the source, much less fix it. 

Anybody with similar experience of the problem and managed to solve it?
