Default Rattle in the Rear (fixed)

After almost a year off and on of trying to find a rattle at low speed going over bumps I finally found the problem. I replaced the shocks, new shock mounts, and even replaced the left torsion bar to no avail. Finaly I discoverd that one of the body mounts under the rear door had somehow rusted around the mounting bolt. After removing the bolt, installing a larger washer and re tighting, the rattle is now gone . I know others on this site have the same rattle so I thought I would post this along with some pictires. Thanks to all of those here that tried to help me with their ideas when I posted for your help
