update. Dealer says the rear shocks are bad and thats what they banging is coming from. They also said I have a front struct that is leaking. Rears are covered by warranty and fronts arent. They want $900 to do the front struts which sounds absolutely ridiculous to me. Called GM to see about cost assistance since I am only a few weeks out of bumper to bumper.

So a couple weeks ago I hit a small bump and a banging noise came from the driver rear but quickly went away. Didn't happen again until today after another small bump.
I crawled under the car but cant see anything cracked/broken or loose. I have noticed a few people on here saying that they had a similar issue and it ended up being the sway bar link. Anyone else have a similar issue with their regal?

Can you raise it up in the back to stretch out the suspension components? Might help see something obvious.

It could be a broken rear strut mount or the strut itself.
