    Does anybody notice rattling from their rear suspension? I have sportlines with KYB GR-2s in the rear.

    Check your upper shock mounts for proper torque, this is the most common cause of suspension rattle/knock.

    Improper spring installation? Make sure the springs are seated correctly- that's the most common cause.

    I do get a small rattle when I go over a bump. But I do believe that I know what it came from. YOu should check some of your bolts and seats just to make sure that it was done properly.
    GOOD LUCK
