I'll keep it short. Car is lowered on Eibach pro-kit. No sound over bumps or anything. Everything is tightened down to spec. Have TexasSpeed LTH 1-7/8 catless into MBRP Race Cat back with Mid mufflers installed. Sound is Metallic and occurs when first turning the car on or accelerating at low speeds inconsistently. Sometimes I will hear it others I won't. It's not rythmic like the DI pump. Does not sound like the infamous tik the 5.0 coyotes are known for. (I have it and it's not that). Im thinking it's either the springs themselves squeaking when being compressed. They're progressive rate on the PP1 linear shocks, or possible exhaust leak. Here is the sound below. I have checked for head gasket tiks. Heard nothing that would signify a blown gasket. No loss of power or acceleration. No white smoke except for normal cold starts. No cloudy oil etc.....

Sound Occurs around the 7 sec mark and is brief.
