    Got joms on.fronts are fine but theres an awful rattle on back. All bump stops are in place and theres clearance from exhaust hitting from axle. Everyrhing is tight. Is everytime i go over the slightest bump they rattle like mad. Could the shocks of gone? Is there anyone with pictures of a rear coilover set up?

    I would look at the topmounts fella. I had the same and this is what my topmounts looked like. Pay more attention to the one on the left...

    Arrkon did you just replace mounts and rattle went away? Or was there more to it?
