hello welcome to the site
this rattling noise could be a few thing like struts or a suspension worn out.
this is something i see on all makes the struts wear out and don't do their job while going over the bumps.

Should i take the car in right away to a land rover service station
Auto Mechanic: Dino, Technician replied 8 years ago
honestly any tire shop should be able to verify this and make a solid recommendation on what needs to be replaced.
how ever this is entirely your decision .
land rover will know your truck inside and out but this will be more expensive then a tire shop.
