    so every once n a while i hear thumps from underneath my truck, like a rock hit the frame but WRONG i look back and theres nothing. today it happened but on the left front tire...which i also screwed up i think i messed the alignment up because if im going straight in order to keep going straight i have to turn the steering wheel slightly to the right. anyone have a solution to the thumps from udner the truck?

    on the bright side i have some pics from saturday

    Does it seem to matter what speed you are going when you hear the thumps? I recently made a thread about noises from the left front around 40-60 mph The local dealership has no clue. It sounds like we have the same issue or something similar.

    I've noticed the sound on my '09 a couple times. Like you said, it sounds like a rock or road debris hit the underside. Usually it sounds like it's coming from the rear passenger side.... My truck drives strait, and has never been off the pavement.
