On the way home I heard this metal to metal scratching sound. Sounds like if you scratch a piece of metal sheet with another rough metal surface. It only happens if I am going over 20 mph (atleast thats when I start to hear it). Coming somewhere from the front. It is not from engine since reving the engine doesn't change it a bit. Hitting the brakes doesn't change it. Pushing the clutch, putting the transmission in netural doesn't change it.

What could it be? What should I look for?
I had, also, weird noises after one sway bar links broke (the ball joint came out, too). It was the link rubbing against the sway bar. Try to move the link ( you should be able to lower it) and see if it still makes the noise.

mrcarcrazy look for crap around the spring(upper and lower seat.) lots of odd noises can come from there...

Also check control arm bolts.
