T4 Post Icon What's that sound?

I've lowered my van and now there's a sound .
Before it was there too but not that much as now.
When I drive over little bumps in the road it's there.
It comes from under my frontseats.
I checked under the van but can't find anything
It's not the antirollbar rubbers or something at the wheelsides. more like in the middle of the van.
The sound is something like iron on iron ( sounds like kloing kloing)
When I'm reversing and brake there's some movement and sound too. Engine/gearbox mounts?

Somebody who knows what it could be?

How much have you lowered it?
If it's slammed the upper control arms could hot the upper shock mount.
