Hello there, a noise such as this can have many different faults for your 2007 Chevrolet Aveo5. Given that the Aveo is a front-wheel drive vehicle, there are no drive components in the rear.

A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the rear-end noise and perform any repairs required.
