my 3.6 did it (whatever "it" is exactly) after a t-belt change, pulleys shocks and bearings inclusive, but didn't do it on the 4.2 after keith @ audiconnection did the 4.2 swap, new timing belt and all. 

Point being is I installed two new knock sensors both times. Only happened once.  I don't think bad KSs would make such a noise.  

But what raises my eyebrows is that the rattle/clacking/etc we hear(d) could possibly be confusing the KSs into sending false readings to the ecu, confusing the thing.  The 3.6, when it was experiencing it, wasn't as snappy as it shouldve been.

 Nuts & bolts noise, deisel sound,
