did you replace all of these?
If so then do a compression test.
It may also be a sticking valve.
As for the noise at the back it could also be a few things. Is the car feeling too tail happy? If so my guess is subframe bushes.
If its clinking at hard accelaration then its either drive shaft or diff related.

"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"

Why the * is everyone still on about this cable? The stomp test reveals everything that is possible to reveal.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it
