Hearing medal like click when I pull out of parking spot - anyone else?

I've been noticing when I hop in the car after it's been sitting, start it, put in reverse and start rolling out of my spot... I hear a small medal click from underneath the car. Happens in 1st gear and Reverse. Anyone else notice this? Car drives fine and this is intermittent, just curious.

Is it almost like a screech but at a low tone like something needs to be lubed?

I know exactly the sound that ur referring to. Used to happen all the time. However it was due to my bsh pendulum or torque arm insert bolts. The minute I lubed them well the sound disappeared. Also happened with my autotech insert. R u stock?

yeah, same here - I've heard it numerous times, and on numerous vehicles. Normal I suppose.

Sounds like you guys are talking about the brake pads clicking in the carriers when you change direction from reverse to forward and from forward to reverse. There is play in the carriers and the pads may click a bit as the brake rotors change direction.
