Question: Tires Changed Now Loud Clunk/Clang.

I recently had my tires changed on my Mustang GT. Now, there is a loud clunk/clang noise occurring on the rear passenger side of the vehicle.

Is there a correlation between tires being changed and the new noise?

What are the potential causes?

How do I go about diagnosing the potential causes while on jack stands?
