rattling at certain rpm?

The last week-ish, I have noticed that while driving and the rpm's pass 1800, there is a fairly loud rattle. It's only at 1800 rpm, and in every gear. When it is cold, it will do it at idle too.

I originally chalked it up to the exhaust rattle that I have read about. But it is starting to drive me crazy!

Is it just the exhaust, or is it something else? It seems to be coming from the passenger side.

if its still a stock catalytic converter is probably the broken pieces rattling inside the cat, which is located under the passenger side

It happens when its cold at idle when I first start it in the morning, so it shouldn't be u joints

It kinda sounds like a cable vibrating against sheet metal
