[s-cars] Noisy 2Bennett Camber Plates

I installed 2Bennett Camber plates after ruining a pair of SP 9000's.
($0,uch)! I had vowed to watch for wear but was looking in the wrong place. When I
finally looked in the right place the inner shoulders were worn to the steel
belts after only a few thousand miles.
My 2Bennetts are noisy. Rather they transmit noise. The noise I have takes
the form of a 'rattle' at low speed over very minor road imperfectios. Tar
snakes cause the rattle. I don't hear it over bumps, or other greater road
imperfections that cause the suspension to work, or at speed. I am lowered 1-3/4
inches with Eibach springs and OE struts and shocks.
I know the 2Bennetts are involved with this rattle because I temporarily
reinstalled the OE upper shock mounts and the ride was quiet. I suspect the
rattle originates from some other suspension component but I cannot find it. The
strut 'collars' are a tight as I can get them!
Any ideas BTDT?? I have a new set of strut mounting plates and am about to
do an 'Igor' but would rather find the source of the rattle and keep the
2Bennetts. Any help here would be appreciated. I THINK there may be something
wrong with the struts causing the rattle. Anyone have a set to lend for
