Annoying rattle...help

I have a rattle somewhere in the back of my car...I have Roush axle-backs but I just had it on a lift and everything is tight and good...I removed the spare and everything in the trunk but the rattle is still there. It sounds like metal on metal and happens mostly on bumpy roads at low speeds. It reverberates for awhile after a bump. I want to get it taken care of but I am not sure what it could be if it is not the things I checked....help please

Gripping the wheel, his knuckles went white with desire! The wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45. True death: 400 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night...This is Black Sunshine-White Zombie

It's most likely one of the exhaust hangers from your after market axle backs, I had the same problem and so have dozens of others. One of the front hangers is vibrating against the metal bracket that houses the rubber bushing that your hanger slides into. Just take a pair of vice grips or channel locks and bend the hanger back a little nearest the 90 degree angel bend toward the front of the car. That should take care of it.

Ok I will take it back in and put it back on the lift and see if that fixes it. It drives me nuts.

Mine went quick...one day quiet, next day going to work bushings went. There's a tsb out for it. My new dealer, recently moved, wouldn't replace them because I'm lowered so I put CHE lcas on; problem solved.

Well i did this and I still had the rattle. I took it to my dealership and they confirmed it was not the exhaust that was causing the rattle. They kept it and said it will take some time to figure it out. I will update when I find out what it is/was.

That is possible....They are supposed to locate the rattle using magnets or something....all I am glad of is that my dealership is mod friendly when it comes to my warranty.
