    It could be as simple as busting a few bolts out of something like an inner fender and now it rattling arround. You never know.

    Can you get it to make the noise by jumping on the front bumper?

    Yeah, battery tray is very common. Just welded mine back up a couple weeks ago in the Suburban.

    I jumped a sub once and broke a leaf. It would go clang, clang a little on bumps. Got worse with time, too, as it starting walking out of the pack. It was the one with the clamp attached to it.

    The suggestion of standing on the front bumper is a good one. Jump on it a bit to see if you can get it to click. If so you have a decent chance of hearing it well enough since the engine is off to be able to pin point where it's coming from or at least narrow down the area a bit.

    Maybe you got a visit from the "Locker Fairy" /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Maybe you've got a bent flexplate and there's a bolt tapping your inspection cover.
