RATTLE AT 2000RPM

1994 Lexus ES 300

Noises problem
1994 Lexus ES 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 68000 miles

I have a 1994 Toyota Windom (same as Lexus ES300) with a 2.5L V6 4spd auto in Japan. When I am driving I hear a nasty rattle which sounds like it's coming from the rear area between 1900-2100RPM only. When the car is parked however, the rattle is less prominent and sounds like its coming from the front or middle of the car. I had two ideas: Heat shield above catalitic converter, or exhaust tips that cover the pipes (one is dented like it was backed into concrete) Though I maybe wrong which is why I'm asking I need some help figuring out where else to look, and if this is a common problem for this type of car
