Thumping sound


Two weeks ago I installed new shocks (37316) on my 2009 Honda Odyssey.  Yesterday a thumping sound started.  It occurs when going over bumps or uneven road.  The back end doesn't seem to have any give or bounce that is indicative of there being a problem with the shock, but the timing is suspect.  I checked that everything was tight.  Is this something that could indicate a bad shock or would it be some other part of the suspension.  It is not a load or banging sound, but there is a definitive "thump" sound when go over a bump.
