It could be a strut. But it could also be a lot of other things as well. Such as a loose heat shield for the catalytic converter. Or even cheap gas causing the engine to ping. Where is the rattling sound coming from? HTH. -Jim

When my 76 Astre had a similar noise, it turned out to be a shock. So I agree with J. I was able to isolate the sound by laying on the ground and pushing the car up and down til I found the source of the noise. Good luck.
