Well mine does it, but I don't think it should. I'm still working on finding a rattle, so maybe my shocks or bushings are shot.

Mine didn't start doing it until my brother in law let it fall off of a jack when we were changing back brakes. It hit the ground hard, and ever since it's had a rattle. So I've been suspicious of the rear bushings and sway bar links. Just haven't had the money or weather to check it out. I'll get to it eventually.

Does your car have rear stabilizer bar links? Check them first. Not familiar with a 91' have 2-96's.
