check your firewall where the clutch cable routes through..... it could quite possibly be the firewall has cracked and needs reinforcing!!!

I would agree with definately checking this out and also if not the firewall also check your pedal box as they very commonly crack around the clutch pedal mount.

If it sounds more like a crack in the front end as in suspension or that area another common thing that needs to be checked is your cross member bolts as the falcons were always known to produce a cracking noise if these bolts needed a nip up
