It is common for the front sway bar links to wear out. This can cause a sense of looseness, with a slight rattle in the suspension when going over bumps, or when making turns. They cost about $60 a pair at auto supply stores, and can be changed in about 1 hour. There was also a GM technical service bullitin on this vehicle in regards to the steering column which is also a possibility, as well as one regarding loud knocking sounds related to the front strut spring cups.
the rattle could be a loose frt end component, have the front suspension checked for worn ball joints or tie rod ends or even worn sway bar links, as far as the pinging make sure the egr valve is operating right, if it is then try a higher octane gas, good luck.
hi the rattle from rear shocks may well be the lower anchor bushes that have dried up and cracked or shrunk on the fitting thus allowing the lower mount bolt to rattle about on its pin? if your shocks have covered high milage or show sign of leaking? then it would be beneficial to change them? but you can obtain the bushes and are easy diy if you wish ?
I would look at changing out your bushes. do both sides as if this happend on the right you can bet your bottom dollar that the left will soon go as well. While you are at it check your shockabsorber mounts.
