Not a whole lot of information here. Where abouts is the rattle? Is it matched to speed? Is it there all the time?

Check the grease zerks and add some grease. Check over the bushings, you may need to replace them.

2000+ have sealed fitting, so nothing to grease.

Is it an actual rattle or more of a clunk when you go over bumps?

Check out item # 26, rear suspension link. Look at the bushings and connections at both ends.

If the bushings that are pointed out ad broken it will make noise. Inspect both sides. Also inspect number 2, 3, and 4
