Have you Checked your Tires for Low Pressure / Different Size \ Different Rims?
`cos the Metallic Sound could be the Exhaust too...
if Everything Tire Related seems to be OK, I Suggest to Check Carefully the Links, Steering Parts, Ball Rods, etc... for Loosen Parts and misalignment...

...slam when i hit the brakes hard ...
...So you Must Check the Brakes, Specially for Sticking parts like Pistons, Calipers...
