Chain dragging sound/noise - 93 4runner V6-RWD-AT

Hello Everyone,
I've been trying to figure out a very odd and intermittent sound which appears to be coming from my front end perhaps the brake/wheel area.
Over the last few months, I've replaced the wheel bearings with Timkens, remanufactured brake calipers from Toyota, brake pads (inexpensive brand from RockAuto). I upgraded my wheels to 17th inch OEM from a 4th gen Tacoma. The rotors and backing plates look good.
I do know I need to replace my inner and outer tie rods. I have a small leak on my power steering pump but I don't think its coming from there.

The sound shows up at random times, it honestly sounds like I'm dragging a chain and its rattling under the car. When I speed up it gets louder. It goes away after awhile but I dont know why. I usually just slow down and press the brakes a bunch of times.

I cant replicated it when I'm at my house and when I lift the front end I don't see anything that is loose. I will try to record it next time I hear it.


Any ideas or suggestions on where to look?

Thanks again.

Sound clip

Here is a recording of the "dragging chain sound" - HERE

I recorded it after going over train tracks at less than 25 mph. After I recorded the sound stopped. I went over speed bumps afterwards but didnt return.

Have you checked the heat shield over the catalytic converter? Those things can rattle and make weird noises, then when they get hot and the metal expands they quiet down. Be sure to check when it's cool. :-)

I had a death rattle noise once years ago...found a pebble bouncing around in the fuel tank skid plate.
