Default key slap sound over bumps?

I've been hearing this sound for awhile now, I can hear it when I go over speed bumps sometimes and if I turn sometimes, almost sounds like if u grabbed a keychain with a bunch of keys and slapped it up against a filing cabinet... Oh and i I can only hear it at very slow speeds, any ideas?

I've already put the car up on a lift and shaked the hell out of everything and couldn't find anything loose

May not be the solution but its worth a shot. Check out your spare tire/jack. It may be rattling around back there. I have towels wrapped around my tire and jack

The noise is coming from front driver side somewhere, I can actually hear it hitting bumps up to 35-40mph I noticed today, also I noticed, if I go slow and turn left then back to the right real fast it will make the sound but only when I do it that direction, any ideas guys?
