Okay, so i took a look at the door jam, and the hook isn't hitting. Through my inspection, I noticed that the mechanism inside the door that actually swivels back and forth when the hook impacts itactually hits another metal piece below it, locking it in one of it's two positions. THAT piece is what is causing the "metal on metal" loud sound. There really wasn't much I could do about it without taking the door apart to attempt to silence the sound a little bit, so all I could do really was re-greese the mechanism. It sounds ever so slightly quieter, but still loud IMO. Oh well...
