I have heard Berk in person and it does rattle.
Not sure if it is as bad you described though

I am very tolerant to a little rattle, and I like loud exhaust.

So this is bad for me to worry about it.

My berk mid didnt rattle. It shouldnt connect with the cross member or the heat shielding.

My berk mild also makes noses when i first got it. Most noticeable is at idle. My mid never contacted the cross brace. It was touching the heat shield on top of the brace. I had to use a pry bar to pretty much bent the heat shield up amd away. Then no more noise ever since. Hopes that help

if its touching the cross brace, go to home depot, buy a worm clamp, put it around the rear rubber exhaust hanger (right after the flange) and tighten the clamp. It will lift compress the rubber clamp and the mids should clear brace. I had 1 mid slightly touching the brace, and this worked. OR put spacers on the brace to lower it down.
