My early-build 99 has rear sway bar and stab links, the late-build has no rear sway bar. I would inspect struts and coil springs.

Why not just inspect the rear area for play/wear/damage and replace accordingly? That's what most mechanics would do. It's probably going to be pretty obvious once you get under there, whether it's a broken spring or strut, bushing, link or whatever.

I PMed you the visuals on the rear.

I wouldn't call struts going bad on a 99 early, it is 2011 after all. That's pretty old. Personally, I'm guessing strut issues.
