Rattling Noise is due to the following reasons:

1. Engine Rubber Mounts (Solution: Get them replaced)
2. Constant Velcoity Joints---CVJ (Solution: Get them replaced or greased---there are steel balls in it which may rattle)
3. Steering system (Rack & Pinion): Check for loose Inner Ball Joints as well as Torn Rubber Bellows (which means there is dust, foreign particles between moving parts)
4. Steering System(Column): Loosened parts.
5. Engine Tuning Out.

These are primary reason, eliminate one by one and you will come to know the root cause.

On 2001 e320 a rattling noise is coming from converter can tighten it up

More likely you have picked up some road gravel or a rock large enough to rattle. Visually inspect the Catalytic Converter to see if there is a rock bouncing around in it. If not then a replacement would be necessary since there would be nothing to tighten up.

If i manually put my auto locking hubs on my 95 ranger 4x4 into 4wd all the time will it cause any problems to my truck

Youll have poor cornering on pavment. youll go through tires fast, on pavement. Uneven tire wear causing shaking and road noise. The cornering stress on pavment will cause excessive wear on your differential components. No. Its a bad idea unless you are driveing 90 percent on dirt or gravel or snow.
