What is this loud metal pinging noise coming from the rear of my car?

This ping noise happens when I drive slowly, I cant hear it when I am over like 15mph, in this video I am just nudging the car back and forth while it is in park.

I checked the lug nuts they are all tight, tomorrow I will take off the wheels and make sure it has nothing to do with them.
Can anyone tell what that noise is?

There is a metal plate behind the rotor and when I flick it, it makes that same ping noise so i think something is hitting that metal plate. I have to go to class tonight so tomorrow I will pop the wheel off and see if I can get to it.

Is your car lowered?

The springs can bind and cause a ping sound as they unbind.

Might be brake pads shifting or parking brake shoes shifting

You might have a stone on the rotor. It will fall out eventually
