help with noise please

So I have this noise in the rear when going over bumps slowly or when the suspension articulates while going over bumps/dips in the road. Its a rattling sound kinda like a bad shock mount. I have Rogue RSMs and I rebuilt them in an effort to make the sound go away, but it didn't. So I replaced those with stock RSMs and I still have the noise. I have ST coilovers and am only lowered enough to get rid of the wheel gap. All other joints/bushings have been verified ok by a bmw garage. any suggestions on what else to check? TIA

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be that the bolt retaining the trailing arm was loose, so you should check that if you havn't already.
