Parking Brake Clunk?

Over the past 1-2 years I've been chasing a clunk/rattle in the back half of the Jeep. It mostly happens when driving down rough gravel roads or paved roads with a bunch of uneven patches. It doesn't appear to be causing any issues except for annoyance. I have found that if I pull the parking brake up 2 click it stops the noise from happening.

A little bit ago when I finally got annoyed enough with it, I checked the rear A-arm bushings and ball joint. The bushings were shot so I replaced them and the ball joint. It still clunks/rattles over rough roads.

It's odd to me that the noise goes away when I tighten the parking brake a couple clicks. Could the cable have slack and be causing something to hit? Is there a way to adjust the cable to take up slack?

Normally I would go check sway bar links, shocks, and control arm bushings. But those should clunk all the time. Any ideas?
