Glove Compartment Rattle

Since the suspension upgrade, I've noticed more of a rattle from my glove compartment. It has less to do with engineering and more to do with the contents of the box rattling with road vibration. I could remove the contents of the glove, but that defeats the purpose of having this storage space.

Has anyone come up with a functional and aesthetically tasteful way to insulate the glove compartment against vibration? I was thinking maybe dynamat or some kind of rubberized foam. Ideas?

Re: Glove Compartment Rattle

Could just line the bottom with cheap cloth from a craft store. It would look shitty but who looks in there anyways? Are you sure it's the contents rattling against the glove box or the contents rubbing against themselves?

Ever think of putting gloves in your glove box, sandwich whatever rattles between the gloves.

Haha, I do keep my lifting gloves in there. However, all of the essential items I like to have in the car are a bit heavy and rattle. When I'm at HD on Monday I'll take a look around and see what they have in the way of adhesive backed foam.
