2007 Hyundai Elantra: started making this rattling..shocks

Resolved Question:

My 2007 Hyundai Elantra has started to make a creaking sound in the rear passenger tire (that's where the sound is most noticeable) going slow, over bumps, and turning for about 2 weeks now. Today, it started making this rattling/popping sound when going up large hills. I took it to a garage last Thursday, and they lubed up the "bushings" (didn't say which ones) and checked out the shocks and the shocks appear to be in good shape. Have you heard of this before? If so, what is the culprit? The noises are REALLY REALLY annoying and I don't want this to cause a bigger problem if not fixed.

Yes the most common issue are dry rotted strut bushings or Stabilizer and sway bar bushings in the rear . This is where they need to focus and replace the faulty bushings. These are the next steps. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
