Unhappy Rattling noise on Deceleration

I have a 2000 Impreza RS that has recently started to make a noise when I slow down from highway speeds. I'll be driving along at 75-80 and let off the gas, then I hear something from the drivers side front wheel well? Does anyone have any idea what that might be? I searched this great site and found lots of people saying it is the clucth, but couldn't find a non-wrx post. It doesn't do it slowing down from any other speed that I can tell.

It does sound like it could be that heat shield typ of material. I sounds like very light aluminum pieces rattling together. Today it is doing it on upshifts too so I am thinking it might be wise to go to the dealer. If its a heat sheild I can reach I will just remove it.
