Welcome to the forums. I had to replace rear links at 18K miles (29000 km) in my 2016. The right side had play and was a rattle over bumps.
It was covered under the 3/36 warranty. The left and right sides are different part numbers. Replace both.
I used the Mopar brand. I don't know if anyone else sells OEM rear links for these.

Here are the aftermarket choices @ rockauto.com.

I've had both Mevotech and Moog (on a different vehicle, not the 200). They're both decent brands, though it's possible the Mopar OE is better. Mevotech made in Taiwan and Moog in eastern Europe (forget which country.)

You don't state which year your car is (and we have a fair number of owners of older 200s posting in the wrong forum) so don't order the parts from that link unless you have 2015-2017.

PS BTW There are other causes of rear suspension noise on this car. Can't hurt to change the links first though, as they are not expensive.

Can bad rear sway bar bushing cause noise in the front? Chrysler said my rear sway bar bushing are bad and that sound travels 🤷‍♂️

I would have my doubts that a noise under the trunk floor could travel to the front. Fold the rear seatbacks down and go for a road test. It may help to have a helper sit back there to listen and confirm.
'Bad' meaning they are worn and thumping over bumps? Links knock or rattle. Rubber bushings thump.

Replaced the rear sway bar and the noise is still there over bumps. What a pain in the ass. Should have ordered links as well :mad: About to just remove the entire sway bar assembly.

STAR released a couple of bulletins for rattles. See if this is the noise?
