Light rattle in rear - leaf spring bushings?

I replaced a few bushings up front, now everyting is tight. Now in the rear, I can hear a faint rattle over bumps. What things should I check back there for wear?

The bushings for the rear sway appear ok, but the leaf spring bushings appear dry rotted, but not loose.

What else?

I can also hear a vibration sound in the rear when idling.

It could be an exhaust hanger loose, or possibly your rear shocks are shot. Mine are and they make that same noise. The idle noise make me believe that its an exhaust issue.
