      Tucker1, mine was doing the same thing, I finally pinpointed it to the jack storage assembly, it was not secured good enough and caused some rattling.

      I have 2 12 inch subs in my 94 sport. Whenever the subs git, my back hatch rattles. It sounds so bad on the outside. Ive reduced the sound by rapping electrical tape around the knob to open the glass or door. Anyone know how to get it better. It is a really big problem for me.

      I have this same exact problem, but even though it is amazingly annoying I have not looked for the problem. It happens all the time when my music is not on.

      MetallicAvery: where did you wrap the electrical tape?


      I have same problem with my back end rattling.. I finially gave in and bought some dynamat for the sucker. Hopefully I can install it this weekend. But I want to try and reduce all the rattles I can in the back hatch before I seal it up w/ the dynamat.

      ON the 94 there is a handle thing you turn one way to open the glass and the other way to open the whole hatch. Right where the handle twists and connects to the door is where i put the tape. Get it? If you don't i'll try to explain further.
