    did you get help with this? i have the same noise

    I have the same clunk noise and replaced the swaybar links and that did not solve the issue. The wife thought it was not as bad yet I did not agree (She right most of the time). Installation SUCKED as you had to to both side at the same time due to clearance issues.

I have a rattling sound coming from my front end when hitting bumps. Took it in for an alignment check and the only thing wrong is slightly worn lower ball joints. What could be causing this noise?


rattling noises on bumps can be shock rubbers , stabilizer rubbers or bar ball joints
it could be the lower ball joints as they take all the load

Front end rattle when i hit a bump in a 97 tahoe


If it sounds tinny, crawl under when it is cold and tap the outer heat shields on the catalytic converter first, top and bottom, and then the heat sheld attached to the body. if any of them make noise, that is the source. These are the two likely issues.

If they are snug and quiet, look for anything hanging down. Inner fender liners come loose all the time and may the source as well.

I can think of two things not easily seen that can cause a banging when hitting small bumps;
The sway bar end links could be loose or broken.
The rear shock bolts, the lower bolt that holds the shock onto the rear axle, I've seen that mounting hole down there get enlarged, allowing the shock bolt to move about when hitting small bumps, causing a banging sound.
Check those two things out.

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Im getting a rattle under the jeep. It sounds like metal hitting metal its not the exhaust for that is not hittig anything. it sounds like its to the rear. Someone said...


Your jeep has two upper and two lower control arms attached to the rear axle. They have rubber bushings where they bolt to the axle and to the body. If the bushings are badly deteriorated, you will get a metal to metal sound when hitting bumps. Have them all checked.

Truck pulls hard to the right after a sharp turn or i hit a bump in the road.


Not safe to drive like that. You have a bad balljoint or bad steering box minimum.. What is happening is the front end has mounting pins called Balljoints and they keep the wheels attached to the body of the truck. One or more of those pins are getting ready to come off of your truck

You will not be able to steer your truck, the body of the truck may hit the ground and you will not be moving after that. I can not really suggest you drive to an alignment shop. This sounds like a Park and Tow job.
