possible that other item(s) is rattling...shocks rarely rattle.

Under what conditions does the rattle occur? Going over bumps? On turns? What speed(s) is it most likely?Will it rattle when sitting still , with someone pushing up&down on any particular corner? Is Cap'n Crunch really better than King Vitamin?
