Default When Stopping a Thunk is Heard

Most of the time when I am stopping I hear a single thunk ( A highly Technical term ) from what sounds like the rear axle area. It thunks when I am just about stopped at about 2 or 3 mph and it does not do it every time. I have 17000 miles on it and I don’t know if it always did it or if it just started when they changed the gas tank on the TSB.
Does anyone else have this problem?

Did they leave loose tools or anything else in the trunk or spare tire area?

I checked the spare tire or any tools were loose in the trunk area and everything seemed to be tight.
