    Hello Guys. I have this weird soft clunking noise when I go over uneven pavement or plowed snow. When I turn my driver side wheel to the right the clunking noise increases. I can feel it under my left foot when extended in the driver seat. I don't want to get scammed by the stealership. What could this be?

    I had this once too when my truck was covered in snow and ice. Once I parked it in my heated garage and everything melted the noise/feeling went away. Could be some ice or something?

    I went to the dump this morning and noticed the same thing. Kind of feels like something is tapping on the floor. But the last time I drove (probably the same for you) it was in snow and I suspect something is frozen under there, although I looked and can't see anything. One one of my older tacomas I had a toolbox where ice chunks would get sandwiched between it and the cab. What a racket that used to make!
