Are rear upper shock mounts prone to failure? I got a low speed knock/rattle noise in the right rear and seems to be from the shock or mounting area. You can replicate it just by bouncing the rear end. I checked the end links already and they seam to be ok.

evaporate cooling .... open night sky will also freeze puddles (via radiation) even when temp is above freezing
