Lift it and look for loose exhaust mounts, you might have a bad center support bearing, I've also seen the rear sway bar slip out of its mounts.

Could also be a worn out Rear Shock Mount (RSM). Best way to find out is to get under the car and trying to find play in any of the components.

Also check rear trailing arm bushings. Replace in pairs.
