    The truss rod is vibrating against the inside of the neck?

    If there is no tension on the rod when it vibrates, put just enough tension on the rod to keep it still.

    If it vibrates even under tension, have you tried jamming some tissue or something in there once the setup is done to keep the noise of vibration down?

    Just be careful not to wedge stuff in there that you can't get out!
