Check your rear trailing arm bushings and see if they are completely worn out. Also take a look at the muffler hangers. Rubber doughnut looking things.

I am getting a rattle/rocking noise coming from the bottom of the car. I am thinking that it might be the rear strut mounts, but the noise seems to come from under the car, not the rear deck where they mount. Anyone have experience with the noise these mounts make when they are shot ?
