Got in my 350 today coming back from the beach and started driving and noticed a clicking noise when driving straight but going slow, then when I turn hard left it gets louder and faster. Took it to the ford dealership on the way home to see if they had a mechanic that knew if this was an issue or what and he couldn't get the checking to happen then I had to drive and show him. He told me he thinks it might be the rotor or part of the brake is hitting the rotor when it is disengaged, but he was not really sure, he told me he'd have to put it on the lift and take the wheel off and look. Car has 3,800 mile on it I'm not really sure what could be wrong with it this early on, and I've only had it for 2 weeks from yesterday. If anyone knows anything about this clicking noise let me know, Thanks.

Sounds like the Tech at the Ford dealer is on the right track. Brake pads are in constant rotor contact and if there is a bad spot on the rotor or maybe you picked up a pebble from the road, you will get a rotational click. Pay attention as to its speed and frequency and report back to your local Ford store when you take it for inspection. Yes you need a lift and brains, not a smart ass on a Shelby forum trying to diagnose your new car. Gonna need to take it in, give them as much info as you can and don’t be afraid to duplicate it for them again.

I had the same clicking noise and it ended up being a bad hub on my rear driver side wheel. Car had 2000 miles on it.

Hi, new to the forum here. Created an account just to reply to your particular thread because I'm having the same issue with my '17 GT350. Clicking noise from the wheels, but sounds like it's coming from multiple spots. The clicking only occurs when I take a turn and gets worse the harder I turn. Took it to the dealer and they are replacing both half shafts in the rear as well as one of the wheel hubs.

As a side note, I've seen other people with this same issue and replacing just the wheel hub fixed it, but it appears I also have some other issues with a CV joint(s), which can also cause the clicking and is why they are replacing the half shafts. This is all being done under warranty for mine as it only has 6000 miles on it.

Hoping this fixes my issue - will report back when the repairs are done and we have a verdict.

Good luck to you!

Hi - got my car back from the dealer today after almost two weeks and I'm happy to report that the clicking is no longer present! They replaced both rear half shaft assemblies as well as both rear wheel hubs. Sounds like they got lazy and decided to replace everything instead of narrowing down the issue to one specific hub or CV joint.. but, hey, I'm not complaining.. pretty much have a brand new rear end :)

Long story short, if you hear clicking when making turns, get the axles checked out.. it's more than likely a CV joint and you'll need to replace the axle. I would suggest getting both the left and right axles done at the same time. Then again, I didn't pay for mine, so take that last bit with a grain of salt ;)

I've been hearing something similar, but it is only when the car shifts weight. It doesn't get louder with speed and mostly happens at slow speeds. If the car shifts weight forward or backward, I can hear a slight "ting" sound. I got out and bounced all all for corners but could not reproduce the sound. I made a thread a while back on this, but it must not be a serious concern, as not many other people seem to have this issue or don't notice it. My instinct is that it is most likely just noise coming from the stiffer springs on the car. This is the stiffest suspension I've had on a car, so maybe I'm just not used to it.
