rear shock mount. They are prone to fail after a while. Same thing happened on mine- every bump there would be a "chinging" around sound. You'll have to remove your rear speakers and peel back the trunk lining to access the shock mounts.

I have a light rattle in my rear-drivers side, not sure what it is....think it might be that vacuum plate behind the rotor....it's really annoying, especially since I've replaced/upgraded all my shocks, springs, shock mounts, subframe bushings, bumper mounts........the sound is kind of tinny; like a bolt vibrating in a soup can...

I've just fixed the same thing on mine...
I was about to get the trailing arm bushes and rear top mounts changed when....
I checked around the wheel and brake caliper... I fumbled around and found some foam (sponge) sticking out from the back of the caliper.
I checked further and pulled it out. Mmmm I thought, why was that there? I drove the car again and sure enough the rattle had got worse.
When I pulled up to a traffic light on my way home I realised that under breaking (lightly) the sound disappeared.... try this on yours; drive down a bumpy street and just press the brake lightly... if it stops you know it's brake related.
Took apart the caliper and found that the pads were rattling; that explained why they stopped when they were squeezed against the disc!
Got some bonding agent (high-heat glue) and stuck them in place (on advice from mechanic).
