    Have you been offroad ? it can a simple rock\stone wedged in the undercarriage. Do a through examination to see before we can say what it is as the list is endless.

    You need to get it up in the air and manipulate different parts of the suspension with a jimmy bar etc to see if you can find the noise that way

    It defininetely needs more investigation as the description is too vague to accurately narrow it down at the moment.
