    If you haven't already, do make sure the lug nuts are tight ASAP!
    Shocks and struts can make a clunking noise.
    A pebble caught between the disc and disc sheild can make a scraping noise.
    Are you getting more than one sound? Have you noticed anything else?

    I had a similar issue with my car after it had a brake pads replacing job. The reason was a metalic clip which hold the pad which was touching the brake rotor. If you uninstall the tire and rotate the rotor, you may see that; if that is the case.

    It could be the strut mount bushings. It's been reported as a common problem in early Generation4 and all Generation 3 Camrys.

    It's weird, but the sound has mostly gone away. I don't hear it now. I am going to the tire store to have them check my lugnuts tomorrow. I can't imagine what that would have been, given the fact that my wheel covers where taken off and replaced after having my wheels balanced. I watched them tighten the lugnuts; can they loosen up maybe? It's a mystery.
