strut mount plate and shock bellows question

i've had a 99 5spd lude for four years now...many mods, love it to death but....

after putting in progress rear sway and endlinks a year ago it started to make an atrocious rattling noise, but i checked the frame connections and there's nothing broken or lose...bushings are noise when i try to move the bar.
it's a very loud rattling sound coming from the right rear and possibly the left rear strut towers in the trunk. the slightest vibration or bump will make it rattle. (the grooved lines on the side of the highway make it sound like the car is about to explode)
my mechanic said it may be the strut bushings or the mount plate rattling against the housing.
i tried looking for strut mount plates online but it seems they only sell the rubber lining that slips inside. anyone know what the noise is or where to look for new plates and bushings?

also, anyone have any experience with front shock bellows? the energy suspension bump stops i had disintegrated...
