    I was wondering if you have any suggestions on how to isolate the a loud vibrating sound from the rear of the car as my 72 Camaro is idling. Also on low speeds I hear the same sound. Once I start picking up speed noise goes away..

    I just replaced out the differential, leaf springs, and shocks. Everything appears to be tight and nothing loose. I did notice some rattling noise as I tap on my trunk lid. I was wondering if there are any rubber pieces to cushion between the top and bottom sheet metal on the trunk lid? I have the mufflers added but not the tail pipe yet. I know it is a bit loud from not having the tail pipe section yet, but nothing loose with the exhaust pipe leading up to the muffler.

    Thank you.

    Lol! Or take the deck lid off, or put something in the pinch points.
    Maybe sound deadening on the deck lid and behind the seat?
    The rear of my car makes odd noises as well, so watching.

    Thanks twozs. I needed a laugh.

    71flh, I will try your suggestions. Also, noticed that I am missing the rubber bumper for the trunk lid.

    I had a similar noise that sounded like it was coming from the back of the car and was driving me crazy. Turns out it was the parking brake cable rubbing on the exhaust. Maybe try opening the decklid with the car running and see if the noise changes or goes away.
