Get up in that wheel well with a flashlight.

Sounds like you've checked for nails, screws and nothing. Get up in that wheel well and see if something is lodged or stuck in there. Maybe it is not that big so it only clicks when you hit a bump...

Stay away from FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS.

I hesitated to post this - even as upset as I am. I have tried for weeks and weeks to work with their owners to come to some middle ground without any luck. I don't have a choice at this point. I'll...
