Noise from rear when accelerating, turning right

I have this aweful crunching and grinding noise when I accelerate hard while turning right. The noise is heard on the driver side rear around the upper shock mount. The same sound is heard when I hit a big dip in the road, not pot holes. It is when the suspension "bottoms"

The noise was heard before and after these installs:

New shocks within three to four months (sports to go with the H&R lower springs).
New shock mounts within a couple of months.
New spring pads last week.
New RTA bushings last week.
New subframe bushings last week.
I removed the ebrake to see if it was binding and it wasn't.

Any suggestions?

Thanks to all of you for all the great posts. I'm learning a lot.
