Default rear end noises

I bought my 16yr daughter a 01 cruiser. Has a rattle noise in the rear end. we replaced the shocks, the were toasted, replaced the watts bell crank, center bushing was shot, and also replaced the upper and lower watts links. put a zip tie around the fuel filler hose case that was smacking the plastic rear wheel fender, spare tire is tight and still a noise. just had three people in the back and noise went away. any suggestions really stumping me!

is there a rear swaybar?

just a thought, check the exhaust for bad holders.

May sound a bit odd, but have you made sure the spare tire rack in the back under carriage is secured. the jack in the side panels should be checked to.

Spar tire rack seems tight. Found that the driver sideswsy bar link was bad changed both sides out this morn and 90% of the noise is gone. Would have changed the sway bar clamp bushings but no parts store around by my had them in stock will have to order those next but the bulk of the noises are gone!
