    Hi,
    I had my truck repaired after getting impaled by a out of control civic about a month ago. although it was an impressive accident the damage was moderate. They had to do some body work and replace the front left suspension (replaced shock, repair on the spring I believe and some other things), they realigned it too.
    anyway, ever since I got it back there is a noise that seems to be coming from the front left area. It only happens when I am trying through a hole bump and it seems the more I have my wheels turned the more you can hear it.
    As for the noise itself, it sounds like something is loose, something that is moving/vibrating that shouldn't.
    I could try to record it, it's predictable.

    the repairs are still under warranty.. I was going to add a lift kit this week but I certainly don't want to do it before this has been taken care of... Although I am pretty sure the shop that will add the lift kit could fix that, I would like to get some input before.

    thanks

    Check and see if the wheel balancing weights are hitting your sway bar. Mine would rub when the wheel was turned.

    Note I have a three inch lift with the sway bar relocation kit.

    Good luck.

    the truck is at the garage (repairs were under warranty!) until tomorrow, I will post whatever they find (or don't find) if anyone is interested.
