    Get it up on a mechanics hoist and get him to go over the suspension and steering with his crowbar. They do that over here every 6 months for our warrant of fitness. They find most things. Nice car by the way.

    I bet itís a bloody STONE.
    I had a noise just like that in my HJ Tonner, it sounded like the seat belt buckle hitting the inner panel.
    After many hours of looking and tighten everything I could think of.
    It turned out to be a stone stuck between the chassis rail and the body of the car.
    Have a look with a real good torch. the stone was a decent size so not hard to miss.
    Run your hand along the rail and feel if there is something stuck in there.
