    rattle from below over small bumps?

    Rattling like loud metallic loose change. Somewhere in the undercarriage from the middle of the car to the rear tires...can't quite place the location. But here's the kicker, it doesn't rattle when the brakes are applied. I took off the rear wheels and yanked around and banged a few things trying to replicate the sound but to no avail. I did this to both sides around the rotors/calipers/dust shield. Any other places to check? Thanks.

    Sounds like you parking brakes need adjustment drive close to a wall if possible, drive to reduplicate the noise. When the noise occurs apply slight parking brake pressure. If noise goes away, all you need to do is adjust parking brake. But not the adjustment inside the car.

    Exhaust hangers maybe?

    I had 1 broken off, and another hanging loose recently. Don't know exactly how it happens as the system looks pretty stout to me, but maybe they just fail?

    checked the 3 hangers-solid

    One loosened up last year and I tightened it up. Recently checked and they seemed tight. It's weird, because the rattle goes away when the brakes are lightly pressed.

    someone mentioned non-OE pads not

    fitting properly and that might cause the rattle. I'll have to pull them and check I guess.

    update: 'twas the pads.

    Sitting loose in the cradles. Yanked 'em and applied anti squeal goop liberally. Rattle is 95% gone.
