Your not alone, this happens to alot of GT500's. Mine did it one time. I'm pretty sure mine was caused by the panhard rod aft body mount hole being to big in diameter. I know that I have not heard it since I had a steel washer welded to the mount, some people seem to only have the noise happen one time without doing anything and all is good. Here is a pix of the welded washer, keep in mind there are many other things that could cause this but this could be it. If I recall correctly, the BMR panhard rod uses a different bushing sleeve than the factory rod and isn't held in compression as well, this added washer helps keep things centered. I painted it so it looks factory.

Edit: I'm also using a Fays2 Watts Link now.
