Help! Weird clanking noise coming from rear wheel at low speeds.

I just noticed this when I put the top down, so I'm not sure how long it's been happening. Only happens at very low speeds, like 5MPH. Noise goes away above that.

It's almost like there's a rock or something in the wheel.

I had spacers installed last week, so it's possible it's related.

Wondering if I should stop driving the car until I get it checked out...

Rock in the heat shield around the brake... has happened to me twice and both times went away after a while when the rock fell out. Annoying as hell but no big deal.

I paid the dealership toooo much to get this out when I was not sure what it was... Not clear to me if it would have caused problems or not.

The noise stopped after I drove on the freeway so I think it was just a rock. Thanks!

I had a rock stuck too once. You can bang on the heat shield to see if it rattles around in there.. Its likely at the bottom, just pull it out a bit and it will fall out.
