Do you have them on right? I mean the gasket order. Check your subframe and diff carrier bushings. Anything lose in the trunk? Good luck.

Haha... did you tighten them while you had the car jacked up? If so... rip the stuff out and look at the RSMs... tighten the top nut on the shocks up... I had the same retard problem when I changed my suspension....

Did you check the parking brakes? While driving lift the handle just a couple clicks, see if the noise goes away. Mine rattle. I'll fix it when I do a brake job.

i'm guessing it might be the parking brake, like someone said, or maybe the rear brake pads jingling when going over bumps due to some broken clips. try the e-brake deal, and apply lightly to the brakes when going over bumps to see if the sound goes away.

yeah did the rsm thing, it's more of a metal jingling sound, i will try the e-brake deal, even with no brakes over the bumps it makes the noise, something has to be broken or loose, thanks guys for all the suggestions

Exhaust pipes?

Have you looked at the exhaust system? It snakes very close to the chassis and wouldn't take much to knock it loose from a muffler hanger or off alignment a bit. Then there's the classic cat-converter shield rattle but I assume you'd find that pretty easy. How do the muffler hangers look? There should be two fat rubber ones back at the muffler securing it. Can you duplicate the knock you hear by shaking the tailpipes?

Try checking the anti-rattle clips on the rear calipers. I just replaced mine and the rattles went away. I think they lose tension over time.
