Angry Center rear clunk/thud on hard accel in 2004 E320

Car has 57,000 miles on it. Rear suspension replaced last year w after market standard suspension w conversion kit. Hard acceleration causes a loud clunk/thud that comes from the center rear of the car (literally sounds/feels like the spare tire is lunging--but it's not.) Any ideas of what's causing this problem?

Hello and welcome to the forum! Have you put the car on a lift and checked the aftermarket suspension to make sure nothing is loose? What is the conversion kit that you used?

HIya! The car has yet to be on a lift--will be next week w the same mechanic who did the suspension. I don't know what suspension kit was used, however, I can find out next week. BTW, the sound comes primarily from rear center/rear right
