Annoying Rattle

I've notice this annoying rattle coming from the rear of my jeep. I mentioned it to the dealer when I was in for my oil change and they didn't see anything loose. They did allow me to take a look underneath as I thought it was the exhaust shaking when I go over bumps but it seemed solid. I also checked the spare tire and jack as well as the two storage bins. I actually took them out to rule them out. The noise is still there. To me it seems like it is coming from the right rear. Any chance it is suspension related? I notice it every time I pull in and out of my driveway and I have a smooth curb. I seem to notice it when the car has a little bit of side to side roll even at very slow speed. Is there a rear torsion bar that could have some slop in it. I don't know. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Annoying Rattle

So I don't get it, I hear a bit of a clunk when I go go speed bumps a tad bit fast but never hear anything otherwise? What is it that you guys are hearing? Mine not a rattle at all.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Its not as much a rattle as it is a knocking noise.....right?

At least that what I am hearing.....I actually thought it was the bar from the privacy screen or something in the spare well knocking over bumps..... def hearing something and it is not right.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Mine sounds like a bottom out but it doesn't happen all the time just barley on very small high speed bumps when going over them. Not sure if that's it though or just me being over picky.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Wow, I'm glad it wasn't just me. I was really starting to go crazy. Everything you guys mentioned is exactly what I hear. Not bad at high speeds but very noticable at low speed. I have not gone to the dealer yet but will call them today to see how quickly they can do the flash update. My only concern is that the data sheet says it happens in auto and snow mode and I had it in sport this morning and I was still hearing it. Not as bad but still there. I hope the update will cure the problem.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Just talked to my dealer I booked an appointment to do it Friday takes about 15-20 minutes they said and he said its exactly what I described it as because they heard about it from a notice from Chrysler also.
