Default Noise when hitting bumps

I have a 2016 Limited Highlander that occasionally makes a noise when hitting bumps. I would not describe it as a clunking sound but more like something might be loose or sort of 'sloppy" sounding(if that makes sense). It does not happen when hitting all bumps and it doesn't seem to be dependent on speed. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced or heard of this and what may have resolved it. I have not contacted the dealer because it does not seem to be affecting the handling or driving the vehicle. Just very annoying for a high end vehicle to have this. Thanks for any info anyone can give.

Carried it to the dealer yesterday and was informed that it was a sway bar bushing that needed replacement. Upon further inspection, the tech noticed there was a bracket that was MISSING, apparently from the factory. Scary for parts to be missing from the factory. Certainly not a sign of the quality that Toyota is supposed to be known for. I will be picking up the vehicle tomorrow so we will see if that fixes it.

The rattling noise from hitting bumps is gone. Amazing how everything works like it is supposed to when all the parts are there.
