Soft top rattling

Has anyone had a problem with the support bars rattling at speeds of 50-60? Seems the rivets are loose around the sun rider connections. I just had the entire thing replaced and sure enough- it's doing it again!

I replaced my hardtop with a soft top and I have just learned that my soft top will always pop and crack. It annoys me sometimes, but not enough to go back to a hardtop. It will off 8 moths out of the year so I don't care.

Are the sleeves pulled in place over the joint and are the bars locked into the side bar clips for the sunrider?

^This! Mine rattled like crazy until I realized that the plastic sleeves weren't engaged. They're a PITA to get fully closed because they're so tight, but everything tightened up and stopped rattling afterwards. I hope this helps.

I have this same problem right now! I'm bringing in my soft top next week for the dealer to take a look. My passenger side rivet is loose for the sunrider bar, I tried to clamp it tighter with clamps and hammer a pick in there but it's still loose.
