Suspension Noise Concern! Please help!

I received my 2021 Y about a month ago. When backing out or pulling into the driveway (which is at an incline) and the car is turned/angled in order to drive away from the driveway or to pull up and in it, I get a loud thud/click noise. The closest thing I can compare the sound to is the noise the seats clicking into place makes. I’ve narrowed the noise down to what sounds like the rear right trunk right behind the rear seats - which below is the wheel/axle, etc. The car drivers totally fine and doesn’t make the noise in any other situations. Bringing into service, but was curious if anyone has had similar noises?
