Default Rattle in rear suspension of a 2004 wrx

I have had a rattle in my rear (I think) for a while now. It happens when I hit bumps. I was told it was the the rear top hats. Well I just put new rear struts with new top hats. The rattle is still there. Anyone have any ideas what this may be?!?!

Could be your rear deck lid, your trunk, your wing, and as someone told you your strut/top hats. See if you can recreate it by tapping/hitting your interior/exterior panels

Ok. I've tried to recreate the noise while in the driveway/on my lift. It doesn't happen. Only time it happens is when I hit a bump on the left side of the car. If I hit a bump in the right side doesn't happen.
