Angry Changed Shocks, Sunroof won' SHUT UP!!

So I seriously doubt this has anything to do with the moonroof, but I figured I'd mention it. Bought some Bilstein HD rear shocks, and installed them yesterday. Smooth install overall that barely took an hour. Car seems to ride much nicer now (reason for changing was the oil was leaking in one of the OEM's I had).

OK now to the issue. I'm on the highway to work this morning, and I notice the sunroof is going ape-sh*t, it's just making that stupid rattley noise if it's slightly open, or completely closed. Also when the cover is closed, it continues to rattle.

Anyone have any fool-proof solutions to what it could be? What to check? Do I need to go ahead and lube things?

If it matters, I noticed the car being more vibrate-prone after the shocks were changed when cruising between 65-75mph as well...

Not a great start to this Wednesday. It's not a huge deal, but it is chattery. It used to chatter a bit, but has stopped months ago.

Update: Sunroof stopped chattering. I didn't do anything.

Self-healing cars? This could be bad for repair shops everywhere.

You got me...it was unbearable yesterday, now it's silent. I may still lube up the joints.
