07 WRX Strut Clunk....Now what? Koni questions..

Hey guys... Before I put my car away for the winter, I noticed a slight clunk coming from the rear end. Didn't know what it was......car has 27K on it. Figured the swaybar setup needed greasing. Have Perrin F&R 22mm kit front and back w/endlinks. 2 days ago, I installed Swift springs, put the battery back in (first time out this year!!), and took it out today to get an alignment. When I picked it up again the clunk was back. I remembered the clunk from last year so I made sure to double check everything when I had the struts off/ grease bushings, check for loose bolts, etc. Everything was fine though. So im pretty sure the passenger side rear is bad. I am looking at getting Koni struts. Questions: Can I just replace the rears for now until is get more funds? What else should I look at doing at the same time? I am BRAND NEW to replacing struts and have no clue. BTW I dont autoX or anything it is my DD in the summer so no coilovers for me. Thanks guys.

yes you can, but at 27K your struts shouldn't be blown, do you have a vid of the noise it's making?

No vid....but today I had it on a left and grabbed the passenger side rear wheel where the nise is coming from, and I could compress it by lifting up on the tire.....couldn't do that on the other 3
