What springs did your rears get replaced with? If they're not OEM, you can easily have a low-speed clanking noise because they'll bind. The spring pads could be installed incorrectly, off center, or otherwise causing this issue as well.
I somewhat doubt it was the tools though. The battery compartment is also an area where you could have something rattling around.
The springs are OEM, I guess it's possible they were installed incorrectly - they seemed good to me when we had it on the lift, although I am no expert on suspension.
I already had removed the battery cover, so it couldn't of been that.
I recently stuffed the rear deck with sheets, towels, etc. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it? Maybe I cracked something by applying too much force when stuffing? I dunno.
The clicking noise was LOUD and constant... I cant see anything that was left inside of the car making that noise. Of course, I could be wrong.
