Metal on metal sound

I'm having a metal on metal sound coming from my front drivers side. It only happens at low speed going over sharp bumps which quickly shock the wheel. Looked at all bushings/ball joints all r in good condition and everything it tight. It almost sounds like something is loose and contacting something else metal but I can't find anything loose. Like an exhaust rattle but with thicker metal if that makes sense. Also the sound goes away if I'm on the brakes going over bumps. Inspected all parts of brake system and found nothing out of sorts. The sound just came out of nowhere. I recently replaced front sway end links with moog and did legend dual piston brake upgrade. Things were quiet for a couple weeks after those changes though.

UPDATE:

If anyone is having a similar problem...check your pads. For me the problem was the pads "loose" in the caliper bracket causing this metal on metal noise. The solution was to adjust the shims in the caliper bracket so the pads fit more snugly. Simple fix so check ur pad play first!!! Only a little can make a lot of noise! Hope this helps someone in the near or distant future.
