still rattling after endlinks and tie rods

title says it all. i had the nuts for the front endlinks impacted on. is it possible that they arent tightened down all the way? i havent done the rears yet, and i know the rattling is coming from up front. any ideas?

Is it a rattle like something loose while driving or a clunk during certain conditions?

its a rattle, like bad endlinks rattle. it sounds the same as bad endlink rattle, but toned down.

if you asking about the sway bar nuts, we used a long extension.

Are you sure it's in the front? I had a rattle I thought was in the front, several people riding with me thought it was in the front, but it turned out to be the rear endlinks. They are easy enough to take a look at, just in case. and easier to replace than the fronts.

Also, sometimes the brake pads rattle around. Does it go away if you apply the brakes?

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

yeah, im almost positive its the fronts. i would be going about 40mph, hit a small dip, and immediately hear that infamous rattle. it very well could be the rears. it just sounds like the fronts. i do have new rear endlinks, though. just need to find time to replace them.

havent noticed the brakes, yet.
