2002 chevrolet silverado 2 wheel drive that rattles when you drive down a bumpy road. It seems worse when you first take off in the morning, but after you drive it for a while the noise seems to not be as loud. It sounds like it is coming from the rear end. Anybody know what this could be?

Personally, I would start looking at the exhaust system shields and hangers. Make sure they are secure and not too close to the exhaust components. Minimum clearance for the shields is 20mm ( roughly 3/4"). You might be able to get away with a little less, but move or bend to get additional clearance.
Also make sure the spare tire rigging is secure, always a culprit.
Let me know how it goes,
Regards,

Steering column rattles whengoing down bumpy road,


Not sure if it applies to your Equinox as well, but there was an issue with the steerings intermidiate shaft. At least it was a problem on pick-ups like my brothers 05 Silverado.
The fix was a syringe to repack grease but that never lasted. Now there is an updated shaft that seems to have taken care of it.

I own an '05 Mini Cooper S with increased rattling


hi you can try removing the door panel and putting in some sponge at the top of the door inside, do the window right up and glue it in place you will have to measure the gap between the door and the window as you do not want too thick sponge as this will hinder the window coming down this should cure the rattles have done this with my own bmw and seems to work well....hope that helps

Stop driving and have this checked out ASAP.

You have a worn, loose or broken track rod and/ or streering rack. Also the front suspension should also be checked just to be safe
