Default Rattle noise under car

I've searched this and other forums, but still haven't found it. I installed my kartboy SS and hardened bushings a WHILE ago. Everything went fine, and i'm sure of everything being correctly installed and tightened, (i think). After I took the car off the jacks and went for a ride, i noticed a rattling/squeaking kinda noise. It's gotten worse now, and it CAN'T be normal. It normally happens when i'm shifting or when i'm under deceleration (i guess because of my exhaust). Sounds like it's coming from the drivers side, but the weird thing is, it sounds like it's more toward the rear of the car. It's almost like someone flicking a spring against the undercarriage of the car repeatedly. Anyone have any ideas? I've gotten used to it, but it still does get annoying.

Crawl under the car and move the exhaust around, also try and bounce the car and see if you can hear it. I have also found squeaks by pushing on the rear quarter panel and makeing the car sway back and forth. Basically stand at the quarter panel, and rock it horizontally, hope this makes sense.

I have a rattle too. After looking at everything possible I finally found that it's just an exhaust bracket hitting my sway bar.

after crawling underneath my car I still can not find where my rattle is coming from. It sounds up closet to the engine more than anywhere else. I have rattled my exhaust and everything else I can think of. Only rattles when shifting or sometimes at idle.
