el 6 cylinders and clicking sound.......

After asking a friend who works at the Ford engineering department about a clicking sound I could hear coming from the rear of my car whenever i accelerated he said that all el ghia's (6 cyilinders) made the same noise. However, he said, that the V8's didnt make that sound due to the drive train......... I havren't got a clue about this.. Does anybody know if this is true and what the sound is?

- The sound comes from the right rear of the car when i am stopped and accelerate or when the rear of the car goes over a speed hump (even at extremely slow speeds).... Anyone else have this sound?

i dont know if its the same or not, but i've noticed that all modernd falcons all make a click noise from the rear when slowing and stopping even au's etc all do it. you notice it at traffic lights most when they pull up next to you.... Whats that?

My ED makes some sort of random "clicking"/"ticking" noise at low speed over undulations and turning - it almost sounds like expansion/contraction "ticking" but obviously can't be. I'm buggered if I can work out what the heck causes it and I've tried several times to find it - ie. jacked the diff up and taken both wheels off etc. The only progress I've made is to identify it as being similar sound as when the car is parked with handbrake on and you push sideways on the rear (wobble it on the tyres) - that sound is definitely from the brakes but not sure exactly where/how as I can't reproduce it with the wheels off.
