Default Strange rattle

Hey guys,
I'm getting a strange rattle from the passenger side rear of the vehicle. It doesn't sounds like suspension componenets (clunking, binding) more like there's a loose bracket somewhere back there. Has anyone heard of a common support panel bracket that tends to break or loosen with time? The Cruiser is a 2003 MT base.

Could it possibly be the shock rattling around inside itself (never experienced this but running short on what it could be)?

Have you put it up on ramps or a lift to check everything out?

Take the wheel off and check the fuel filler tube. Im betting the tie wrap is broke and banging on the plastic.

Thanks for the ideas guys..checked under the Cruiser over the weekend and noticed the passenger rear shock was leaking. Took that shock off (it was COMPLETELY dead) and replaced with some new sensatracs...rides great now.
