What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Panhard cars are sadly no longer with us, but many vehicles carry an example of Panhard design around with them, the eponymous Rod (isn't it wonderful to be able to use "eponymous" occasionally?). It's used to locate an axle laterally. Despite that if there's significant vertical movement of the axle there will inevitably be lateral displacement as the end of the rod moves in an arc.
