What kind of problems, noise?

Did you replace the old bushings with new?

The Right back side, only at a slow speed makes a rattle or like thump noise as you go over bumps, could this be my sway bar ?

A rattle noise can be a sway bar bushing.

Sometimes there is more then one size bushing offered for sale for use with different diameter sway bars. The bushing hole size is larger or smaller. Was the correct size used?

You can experiment by wrapping Teflon pipe thread sealant tape around the sway bar where bushing installs to take up any extra space between the bar and bushing hole. If the rattle goes away the issue is the bushing.

Also check the sway bar end links, suspension arm bushings and upper strut mounts.

The upper mounts are located under the side of the rear deck. Have someone ride in the car listening to this area as you driver over bumps.
