SOURCE: Shocks Rattle
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 ?

That vehicle probably has rear shocks only but there is an easy way to tell a strut has a heavy coil surrounding the shock and is easily recognized. Hopefully it is shocks only - they are alot less expensive and easier to work on - Good Luck

One shock absorber can cause a noisy ride also, and I exactly know how you mean by that rough ride, one thing else that causes a noisy rough ride on used cars and we don't even pay attention to it is dry and/or faulty joints underneath the car, try greasing up the joints and change the faulty joints (specially suspension system joints), you'll see how significantly it changes the ride feel of the car, by the way monteros have a pretty truck ride feel, I've had a 2001 Montero it felt more kind of truck than SUV (stiff body and suspension) but yes it was not noisy. Hope my answer give you a hint and please rate my answer if it was helpful, your rating significantly effect my general ratings, thanks!

You could only need the Bump Stops that are rubber and prevent the shocks from hitting the chassis.
OR you may need shocks
OR just the strut bearing at the top of the strut if the struts are not leaking.

If this vehicle is equipped with rear struts....not shock absorbers...which most vehicles are equipped with today the sound you are speaking of seems to indicate worn strut plates and bushings... most repair facilities over look these items when replacing the strut housings and thus customer gets this noise even louder now that the struts are new and the plates and bushings are old not able to absorb the shock the vehicles suspension incurrs whuile riding over a bumpy terrain.
