i had the same problem on my 2006 Mazda 3. I figured out that the hangers on the exhaust had broken loose and the tail pipe was rattling in the back. could be your problem or not. if so, its a cheap fix, or you could just do it yourself with band iron and screws.

It stops rattling when apply the breaks I think it's something with the calipers or rotors. Breaking wouldn't stop the exhaust from rattling. Thought it might be the rear springs. Maybe the breaking tension tightens them. Stumped thanks I will check it out though.
