Sounds like you're dealing with a pretty honest shop. Most places would just do the job and charge accordingly. The rattle in the rear could be a loose upper shock bolt.

Double check those top shock bolts in the rear. If they’re not really tight it’ll rattle like hell.

Maybe she's the source of the original rattle back there.....

Price doesn't seem out of line for what they did. I agree, likely a shock bolt or perhaps the shock body rubbing, it's pretty tight in an E-body.

Might as well freshen up the entire front end while you're in there if those bushings are shot, most of the other stuff should be as well..

Makes no sense, but luckily everything else was in perfect condition.

How could everything be "perfect" if the strut rod bushings were shot?   
I know he said the lower control arm bushings were good, but there is room for improvement..   

I myself never do bare minimal.         But I'm not the same as most..

Only a guess, but there has been a lot of things I've came across that the previous owner did the right way, then 1/2 azzed the rest.
