Suspension (?) rattle?

Okay, so for awhile now I keep hearing this sound in my rear suspension (I think). It's when I go over bumps or potholes (there are a lot of them here in Eugene Oregon). I am thinking it could be because I have a Toyota Paseo with big, heavy, 17X7.5's....the car doesn't have heavy-duty enough bushings to handle that much weight on bumps. Has anyone else had this sort of problem, maybe any advice?

Could be bushing from the suspension. I think, not sure, your car has multi-link suspension? Also, check rear sway bar supports? Most of the time, bushing(especially factory) wear out either dry rot or what not and crack. So check all bushings and stuff. Also, make sure nothing is loose. For the bushings, you might want to upgrade to Polyeurathane bushings.


Also, one more thing, maybe you should also look at your exhaust. It might be loose too.
