Strange Sound

Not sure if this has been asked, but I'll describe the sound I hear, and maybe someone can pin point it.

Imagine if you will, the sound that non-bmw brakes make when getting low. The metal on metal scratching sound. Now imagine that sound for only 1/2 second. That is the sound that the left rear, and possibly the right rear wheel make when they go over a bump, manhole cover, break in the pavement...

Anyone have any clue as to what this could be?

It doesn't sound like a hard knock, as if the sway bar was loose. Could it be the sway bar neededing to be greased?

Thanks all
