Rattling under floorboards

Ok so I my car is lowered on Sport lines which are pretty low and I had to park over a small mound of mulch one day. Don't ask why.

Basically, when I backed out, the mulch was pulling on something under my car. I gave it a bit more gas and it pulled itself out. Everything seemed fine.

It is not

Since then, there is what I thought was a pretty bad exhaust rattle that sounds like it is where the h pipe is. It only occurs over sharp bumps in the road and I can actually feel it in my gas pedal a little bit.

I might have to rule out the exhaust being loose since I just put my cats back on my car today and retightened and adjusted the exhaust and it is doing the exact same thing.

I am hoping it is not suspension related although I have not checked yet.

It is more severe when my right front tire hits the bumps.

I am koni orange struts and sport line springs with cc plates.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

Predicting your Koni orange on that side is blown, or your CC plate is loose/ strut bolt is loose.

Check to see if your KONIs look like this lol... Fixed my rattle by taking that junk out and putting yellows in.

My konis are only a year old but I took the wheel off and found that one of the bolts was loose. It was tight on the driver's side. I'll post a picture in a second

Not sure if that was the problem yet since I haven't driven it yet but hopefully that was a simple fix.

Let me know when you drive it. Looks clean under there so it's most likely not leaking or going bad.

I won't be testing it out until tomorrow. It's midnight here right now. I just had to check or I wouldn't have been able to sleep. Im guessing that was the issue though. Makes a lot of sense.

Ok I just went for a long drive and the problem is completely gone. Feels like a different car. Good thing I found the problem early before it got worse.
