I have stock mounts and mine rattles. Does your's rattle at idle too? Mine gets quieter when I keep my hand on the steering wheel. I was thinking about having dynamatting it too.

Yep it does. It's pretty bad... Lol. That's the only thing that drives my nuts about my car

All of our SVTF's rattle. Mine does it in the winter but not really at all in the summer, so I've learned to live with it.

Maybe some loosening and re-tightening of bolts would work. I had horrible rattle when my Kenwood speakers were installed. It was like something was loose. When I took it back to get fixed they took the panel off looking for the rattle and put it back together saying they couldn't find it. I'm assuming just that alone is what fixed it. Maybe I should take my dash out partially and then put it back together?

Mine rattles as well, it also drives me crazy. One day when I have time I'm tearing into to find the rattle.....one day.

I went to a shop a while back and bought a gigantic pack of small/thin o-rings. I went though every nut/bolt/screw I could find and installed them. I still get rattles, but with the poly motor mounts, you cant avoid them all.

My solution:

crank up them tunes.

I don't have any poly mount and in the winter the rattles suck, so I just do the same... Crank up the stereo, LOL.

Looks like dynamatting the whole car is the only thing that could work but who wants to make that expensive experiment.
