head scratcher

My 85 monte has been sitting since December, I took it out for a spin today and every time i was cruising and would hit the breaks, I'd hear a clunky sound come from the back of the car. It feels almost like the back of the car wants to come apart. I know it's not the body mounts, I just replaced all of them last summer. I also get the same problem when I turn hard.
Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

I'm guessing rust on the drum surface, due to sitting.

How about control arm and panhard bar bushings? Is there a sway bar on it? Shock mountings?

You might check your transmission mounts, they can cause this problem, but feel fine when doing normal driving, also check your shocks if one is flat may cause a shift when you brake.

Dude, check your rear brakes. they are in need of some tlc. dont skimp and machine the drums, buy new ones. You should also check the front brakes. Make sure all brake parts are ok. (including those darn parking brake cables!).
