Rear Trailing arm bushes

Stuffed Shocks.

But before you look at any of that, just try tightening the lower shock mounting bolts.

Re: Bad rattle in rear suspension.

I have had monroe and pedders shocks die on me after 12 months.....

but anyway, have a look at the rear shock mount, but I'd guess its your rear trailing arm bushes.
