Persistent Knocking/Popping Noise in the back

Okay....well, its been a while since I've posted something on the forum. But, as the title suggests, I have been having an issue with a knocking/ popping noise coming from the back of my 2011 mazda 3. I've looked around the different forums and threads regarding this noise and a majority of people with similar issues end up solving them by changing the rear end links. I did that last week and the noise is back again I jacked my car up to take a look at the upper shock mount and rotated the rear tires to see if maybe the wheel bearings had something to do with it but everything checked out okay to me (I'm no mechanic so take it with a grain of salt lol) I took a few pictures of what the sway bar and end links look like...maybe that'll help solve this mystery.

Thanks!
