MYSTERIOUS CAR NOISE

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution • 4 cylinder AWD Manual • 60,000 miles

I have squeak/chatter/clunck/chirp/etc type noises that's been getting worse with time that is coming from the front left of my car as I drive it as if somethings loose. It makes the sounds when I hit bumps in and out of gear when I'm coasting, but oddly not when I'm accelerating or engine breaking (therefore it's not suspension). I suspected the CV joint but it will do it slightly sometimes when I'm not moving or turning the wheel as if the engine is vibrating whatever's causing the noise. It sounds like somethings loose but I can't find it and its not always consistant or repeatable.
