My guess would be control arm bushings as these guys have said, or it could be the heat shield. Mine rattled like hell for a while

with the exhaust thatll work. leaf springs will be pretty obvious. the leaf thats broken will be barely hanging on. & with the bushings i check to see if the rubber is still in there. if the bushings are really cracked up. etc...
