We just bought an '06 in June of this year and had the same rattling in the rear passenger side. Same as you, we took it in to have the rear shock looked at, and they said it was fine. The rattling seemed to have gotten worse the last few weeks. So, I finally got under the car and discovered that the gas line coming in has what seems to be a clip that, not sure if it was supposed to hold it or was just a bump stop. Either way, I put a zip tie around it and just drove it around the block which seem to (crossing fingers) take care of the rattle. I am, however, pretty sure that the shock/strut is bad, because the whole car shimmies to the right when we hit a bad patch of road.
Hope this was helpful.
