9er suspension question

So I've never thought of my suspension setup until, but I'm wondering if I can dial it in better.

So everytime I hit a small bump or un-even asfalt, the rear always makes a clunk. It sounds as if the rear, after compressing over the bump, returns to its normal state too fast, making that clunk noise. Not sure if it's normal or something can be adjusted for it to stop clunking.

Can anybody explain to me what's happening at the rear?

I can explain it. The OEM shock SUCKS. A replacement is well worth the investment.

Makes a clunk? I'd have a very very close look at things because I can't see why it would make a clunk sound even if the shock is not a good as other shocks.

Maybe something is loose. It could be defective shock, but on a small bump, getting a cluck sounds like something is broken, not just low quality shock.

One time I did not get my Corbin fully latched & got a terrible clank on every bump. Pulled over thinking something was wrong & realized it.
