Rattle-type noise (rear right side)??

1998 Boxster w/ 72K miles.

Just started to notice a rattle or creaking noise from the right side (towards the back wheel). I only hear it when the car is moving slowly (say 0 to 10 mph). Once speed is higher than that, I either don't hear it or don't notice it. The back rotors were replaced 2k miles ago so doubt it that.

Any help/opinions would be appreciated.

lower track arm bushings are out where it connects to the body. The bushings are not a seperate item, must get the entire lower arm.

Unless you can provide a more detailed description, I'd suggest checking all of the rear suspension components (shocks, bearings, bushings, CV joints, etc.)

Could be a bushing but the sound could be masked and be coming from any of the other sources. Good reason to check everything.

Lower track arm bushings. Vertex auto is the place to get the track arms. They take yours as a core on return and credit you for them.
