After BB and bilsteins rear suspension rattle

So I got the installation done. All bolts have been checked and double checked. I threw it on the hoist and everything seems good and tight. But when it get it on the road there is a rattle in the rear suspension. Is there something I am missing here?

Thanks again!

Have you checked all the bushings? Swaybar links, control arms?

I didn't have a chance to get it back on the hoist. I am taking it in tomorrow to get my tires done so I think I will have them take a look at it while they have it up ad see if they can ID the issue.

It is most likely the shocks. The spacer that goes in the bushing is less than ideal. I made my own from 3/8" pipe nipples, they fit tight in the bushing and I was able to make them to the right length.

This worked perfectly! Thanks for the tip!
