    It is pretty loud. It sounds like metal on metal grinding. It usually only happens when i am getting going from a stop when its cold, or once i am rolling pretty slow and push the gas pedal pretty hard it will do it too. I thought maybe suspension? Because it only happens when i take off and when i gas it, so like when the truck leans back i guess you could say. It doesnt do it after i have been driving it for a minute. It's making me nervous reading the 05 motor mounts failing thread. Where is the best spot to look at your motor mounts from? Any suggestions on what it could be? It's really embarrasing to leave work in front of all my co-workers and have my new truck making all kinds of sounds. Thanks guys

    That could be several things; wheel bearing, diff bearing, cv joint, maybe even brakes.

    Best thing to do would be to take the wheel off and inspect everything. Look for leaks, metal shavings, hole in the cv boot(s), check the rotors and pads too. Check for rub marks on the coil overs and you steering rods and end links.

    Have you done any suspension work or gotten an alignment recently? When I had that problem the bolts that held my UCAs to the shock tower were loose and the whole assembly would jolt at them time you describe
