    So recently I have developed a clunk sound coming what sounds like the driver side wheel well area when...

    turning right (Not every time)

    Going in or out of driveway aprons that have higher then normal lips (again not every time)

    And hit speed bumps at a faster then snails pace.

    I currently have it up on jacks and nothing is loose and there’s not much play in anything and my front driver side tire doesn’t wobble like it’s the wheel barring

    only thing I have noticed is both my wheels when free spin sound like there is some sort of debris or something in the break pad area or axel area. Like maybe I didn’t fully spray the wheels down enough after the last outing.

    any ideas on the clunk sound?? No other noises when going down the road.

    If it’s not sway bushings or end links. Probably lower control arm bushing sleeves seizing or radiator mount bushings.

    I had a clunk, it was my lower control arm bolts and nuts, they were loose. When you check these, have your truck on ramps if you can. You want the weight of the truck on the suspension if/when you tighten them. I use a 2' cheater pipe on a 1/2" drive ratchet. You should probably use a torque wrench and you'll have to remove your skid to get to them.
    This got rid of my clunk, but it could be a number of things.
