: : As listed I have a mysterious rear suspension rattle. I've replaced both shocks and mounts (need new ones anyways) but it hasn't subsided. Do the rear control arm (for lack of better term) bushings wear out? Would worn sway bar bushing ever be audible?

: : Thanks
: I have the same rattle, I thought it was something under my rear seat or in my trunk( a nut or a lost socket maybe), seemed to amplify during braking. Guess not

Check K-frame bushings and mounting bolts, also check sway bar links and bushings
