I think I found the cause of my rattle...

I've been getting this nasty rattling sound from the left rear of my car. Mostly when I go over bumps at low speed. I was told maybe it was my RSM's but I though that was highly unlikely because I just replaced them this spring. I decided to check it out anyway and everything was good. Nothing was loose in the trunk and everything seemed to be tightened down. Then I got under the car and took a look at my RTAB. I had those replaced in the spring as well but low and behold the one on the left side was not pressed in all the way. It was so far out that the arm was pushed right up against the console! I figured this had to be it so the car is going in this week.
