I know a few have tried/trying. I tried two methods. I literally duct taped my phone to the strut/suspension towers inside the engine bay area..(obviously there was an excess of engine noise, who knew, jk). Then, I duct taped my phone into the wheel well right next to the strut/spring assembly. I got a lot better recording, though not something that "sounds exactly like the clunk/pop I hear from inside the car whilst driving"; but more promising than the engine bay. Which leads me to conclude, that it is very hard to get an identical cluck/pop/rattle without say, some top of the line A/V equipment with audio editing software, la-di-da-di-da...

I'll try and get my video up sometime real soon, if only I can edit it.
