Help Englands cricket stumps?

Somebody seems to have hidden some cricket stumps in a box somewhere under the nearside of my 147. They can be clearly heard rattling when I drive over bumps or potholes. Not so noticeable above 50mph. Had ATS have a quick look but they could find nothing wrong. Any ideas as to cause and solution welcome.

Re: Englands cricket stumps?

lower suspension arm would be my first guess... closely followed by the upper suspension arm!

get a decent indie to check the suspension over for excessive play on the ball joints and bushes.

its not rare for the bushes to fail resulting in rattling knocking squeaking noises...
