When I hit the low e string my tremolo Arm rattles are there any ways to fix this? I have screwed it all the way and it still rattles.

If it were mine I would get some plumbers teflon tape. Wrap it on the threads and screw it back in.

Do you know its the trem arm? It could be something else loose.
Let the pretend take over
And that season be the first
Shadows we're in become us
So we set up interspersed
Between here and away
Become your space every day

I agree with kurtlives on this one... It sounds more like a problem with the bridge. Does it look like the piee that your low E string goes into (I forget the name of it) is hovering? Or, more likely, setting into the screw tracks?
