Loose change sound coming from rear

Need a bit of help regarding my 99 328i

I've been noticing a sound that sounds like its coming from the rear. When im driving(whether coasting or accelerating) there's a loose change-like sound I can hear, especially when I hit any bumps in the road... but as soon as I start to hit the brakes, the sound is gone. Anyone experience this before? I want to go get it checked out, but can't get to my mechanic for a couple of weeks so I thought I'd ask here.

Thanks for any help.

What brake pads do you have in the rear? Some cheap aftermarket pads do not fit in the caliper brackets perfectly and they move around. Check it out!

Had this problem, he is on the money, you can use some brake grease, anti squeak thing until you get new pads, they help a little. And stretch the pad clips so they fit in better. But eventually you will need to change em with a better pair.
