rattling from suspension on my new 01

so whenever I drive over a bumpy road its more noisy than a ford. rattles away> I had this in my old 99 and I never did anything about it. I dont think my shocks are bad, but what typically causes these cars to make suspension rattles? Ive had two like this now, and my womans 05 987 also is now doing it.

Check out your control/trailing arms. I had a similar noise, changed out the arms and cv's and noise is now gone.

Often it's just drop links. Not expensive and any easy DIY fix!
