Weird Sound

On the way back from Florida last week, we noticed a sound coming from the passenger side area around the front wheel. The sound is something like two pieces of metal hitting one another. It resembles a "snapping" sound and is louder while going over a bump in the road. Sometimes it is a constant snapping which is not as loud, but none-the-less very annoying. I thought it might be a loose shock or shock mounting, but everything looks OK. I suppose it could be a weld that has fatigued on the framing, but at this point I just don't know. Anyone with ideas? It is a 2011 3710 Challenger. Thanks in advance.

It could be worn bushings, ball joint, I'd suggest having a pro listen or look before doing any more driving. It probably won't solve itself and will just cost more if you put it off.

If you have front mud flaps, I've heard of several people with the same problem discovering that was the culprit.
I had a similar problem that turned out to be the hood/generator door flapping in the wind. Adjusted the stopper and fixed the problem.

I have heard strange sounds from the passenger side tire well area. Turned out to be items in the storage compartment banging around.

If you have hub caps, make sure they are tight.
