the best way to localize noises , is to drive car on ramps , use a stethoscope , and a second person to bounce car .also as someone mentioned , the lower rubber bushings on shocks can be noisy .soak with WD40 , or hydr fluid .also torsion bar bushings .

Going to give that a try! I've already lubricated the bushings on the torsion bar and they already seem fine, so it's most likely not there. Going to take a look at the rubber bushings by the shocks. Thanks!
