rattle/squeak from the back

I've got a '99 TJ and it has an amazingly annoying problem...there is an almost constant rattling coming from the back right corner of the car. Sometimes it squeaks/creaks a little also, but the main noise is the rattle.

The noise is the loudest when going over any bumps but sometimes is even present when going over seemingly smooth road.

I had both the rear shocks replaced, but this didn't help. Any ideas?? It's driving me nuts!!

check the bushings on the shocks. these can go fairly quick causing a rattiling in the rear end. most shocks you purchase for jeeps are actually designed for light trucks and not the medium weight of a jeep, hence causing a very harsh ride and premature failure of these bushings. also check to make sure your exhaust isn't rubbing on anything. if you crawl under and look up, if something is rubbing you should be able to find it. look for shinny areas.
