    So ive started noticing this noise the last few times ive been offroading. Its like when i'm on the trail in 4 lo and suspension is flexing in different ways on uneven rocky terrain i get like this clunking noise. It kinda makes me think its coming from the vehicle flexing but its not the right noise. I have a full OME lift with LR uca's and dakars. Ive been under and checked everything for play or bindage, everything has clearance, i torqued my ubolts. Its drivin me nuts, has anybody else experienced this or have any ideas?

    I did have my trailer hitch on and it does have some play in the reciever but I don't think its comin from the rear bumper. Im gonna check my coilovers and shock mounting bolts today.

    Sway bar bushings that are worn out will make a clunk type noise when going over a speed bump or flexing.

    im tempted to take the swaybar off. there is like 3\4 inch clearance between the swaybar and coil. I am gonna check the bushings. thanks for the ideas guys.
