    In 2 weeks I'm replacing a lot of my suspension components and want to go ahead and change out anything involving the banging sound I keep hearing when I hit minor pot holes.

    Its an 07 Tacoma with 120k miles...

    I'm already gonna replace both inner and outter tie rods and both lower balls joints...

    My upper control ball joints are lr aftermarket ones that have about 10k miles on them so I probably won't replace them.

    Is there any joints or anything that I'm missing that can be associated with the sound I'm hearing?

    This truck does get offroaded frequently.

    Thanks for any help/input!

    I would make sure the body mount bushings are tightened.
