    Maybe he has some odd 2wd coilovers that don't clear the axles? :confused:

    Sounds like your truck is a mess bro. Take a few pics of the front suspension so people can help you sort it out.

    Lmk if these pics are good enuf......i think it mightbe hitting because of all my loose joints underneath but not sure.....as far as my "tock" sound ......im thinkin either lower a arm bushings, ti rods, orball joints...... my next move will be to strap my go pro underneath andsee if i can spot sumthin unusuall..... or hell just replace the whole underneath....... also anyone knows of good brand of sprays fr undercoating???? Mahalos in advace :)

    the knock going over bumps could be the axle hitting the coilover while compressed
