Hi I'm Kevin did you undertake work? What was the reason for work? And was noise there before?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
mechanic did the job, change front strut and rear dumpers as suggeted by mechanic, after claking noise appeared, mechanic change endlinks, sound became less
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Ok if noise wasn't there before rear dampers then it's likely there are the issue or something disturbed whilst fitting .when does noise occur ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
noise occurs even on small bumps on the road, silent when the road is smooth, read on some forums that it might be the damper mount.
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

This is quite possible as the damper mount would have been off and disturbed when changing dampers and would only occur over bumps as you are experiencing
