Hmmm,
I had something similar, but it was more of a rubbing noise. I raised the car and looked for something loose, and moved the axles a little, but couldn't find anything. It went away for a while, but came back worse. Other posts I've read say that a metalic noise that is directly tied to acceleration and car speed (vice engine speed) sounds like CV joints. I ordered new ones, and removed and took apart the old ones (originals I think). There was some significant wear and damage in the joints so I'm hoping that was it. While I was at it, I stripped and repainted the axles (better than new), got the boots on and the CV joints are next. Pics show old axle and stripped, then painted and new boots (joints are in the boxes).

Here's the new axles all put together, just need to pack the moly grease on each joint and bolt in place. I'll let you know if it fixes the noise.

Louie, Really great looking axles! Now you have to take off the CV's and grease the heck out of them. Yes both from both sides with the gray moly grease.

Wow Louie, so clean! I just did mine, I swear everything within ten feet of me had grease on it when I was done. You did it the smart way, all new stuff. I tore apart each CV, cleaned and inspected them. Everything looked good so I reassembled, relubed, and then put them on with new boots. Amazing the difference it made.

Whooo, putting them in was easier than taking them out. So far so good. No noises and smooth driving. I'll get it back up in the air in a week to check the bolt torques. At this rate I'll have a new car in a year.

I took my car to a local shop next to my business and carefully watched as they took things apart. The boot was almost completly dry. So I had them repack both axels. There was also some play in the right rear emergency cable. Im thinking thats the culprit. Is it possible the extra slack in the cable was allowing the excess cable to get caught in the wheel when driving. I dunno but for the moment everything seems to be OK. The innards of the CV seemed fine the bearings as well. Hopefully thats that.
