I wish it were that, but it's definite a clicking noise in response to acceleration and deceleration.
do visual inspect around rear tires(oil spatter on rims means blown seal). review when wheel bearings last repacked.

The only thing that comes to mind is a loose or worn suspension part? We usually charge a small fee to pinpoint the cause of noises like these, but we could discount the testing charge or credit the testing charge toward a repair. Did you have a wheel alignment service performed recently? Give us a call and set up a time to swing by. We would be glad to check it our for you. We might be able to give you a better idea if I could hear your description over the phone.
Yes, there was a wheel alignment but it has been several months, after buying two new tires. Thanks
