I have an idea, I did have that problem, but I only bent the heat shield out of the way.

I'm going to use dynamat (Actually called eDead. 40sqft from ebay=$50) and use that and secure the edge of the heatshield to the floor-pan. My rattling problem is by my rear cross-member.

I doubt It'll cause a problem. The stuff claims to be good up to 350 F.
temps don't get that hot 6" away from the pipes.

I had this problem...It was the heatshield thats located in front of the exhaust manifold and connects to the header panel...look for loose/missing screws
