Default Noise while braking

Actually the noise is when I release the brake pedal. It's like a clunk noise from the passenger side rear. If I ease off the brake slow I don't hear it, if I'm rolling and just drop my foot off the pedal it clunks. I checked the brakes today, front and back, and to my surprise they're still good. (It shakes a little) I didn't see anything out of the ordinary and no noise while the brake was pressed. Could this noise be from the carrier arm bushings? Although they look good I'm pretty sure they need to be changed, it sways a little in the rear. I'm not in any rush to fix this seeing how I don't drive it much right now, but I'm just wondering if there's something I'm missing.

I would shake the car as hard as I can and see if anything clunks, such as a control arm bushing. If not, put it up on a ramp or stands and get under and heave at everything that could move and make sure its all tight. Probably you will find something loose.
