At lower speeds (cruising in neighborhoods) a metallic clanking may be indicative of e-brake shoes that have come apart inside the drum. Try gently lifting the e-brake, just enough to cause a bit of tension, while you hear the noise and see if it goes away.

I had the same ticking noise and my fix from my local tech was having the drive shaft rebuilt. Not sure exactly what on the drive shaft was causing it.

Good follow up info, thanks guys. Tried pulling up on the ebrake, no difference.

On the way home today I found how to make the ticking louder. Was taking a right handed off ramp at speed and the noise got much louder the tighter I made the turn. I'm thinking the center support bearing as it is seems to be directly under the center console.

I don't want to scare you, but if the noise gets louder when turning I would be taking a close look at the diff. does it make the noise when you turn the other way? Go to a parking lot and do some low speed figure 8s and see if the noise is there.

The center bearing will make noise from a stop as it allows the driveshaft to rise up.

If you find this post unsatisfactory, please add me to your Ignore List so you will not be disappointed again in the future.

Wheel bearings can do what you described. So can loose heat shields and a ton of other underbody stuff.

Strange that the noise is not present during the morning drive, only on the last half of the afternoon drive home. Doubt it is the diff or anything in the rear of the car, noise is no doubt coming from the center of the car. It is in the very early stages right now, I'm sure it will get worse and be easier to pinpoint. I'll be doing shocks and struts soon and will take a look at things when it is up in the air.

Have the same problem, but all I did was swap the snow tires/rims and summer tires/stock rims. Summer tires are new Continentals, Extreme Contact DW (stock size). One thing is that the Indy did use the lugs from the snow tires, not the OEM lugs..

Any help is appreciated

Wheel bolts can protrude excessively through the hub flange and make noise.
