I seen this before and is the upper rear axle support, or the engine support just open your hood and see if the motor move to much, or get on the back the car and look under to see it the axle move to much wile some one is shifting. MAKE SURE TO APPLY EMERGENCY BREAK
Check and see if the Brake Pads were re-installed with all the hardware, ie, Anti-Rattle Clips, shims etc. if your pads are not secure in the Calipers it will cause the pads to rattle when you are driving in effect causing your brakes to make weird noises, ie, groaning, squealing, rattling.
Hello emaci. There are several items that can create a clunk. Struts and mounts, broken coil springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bar links and bushings and control arm bushings. The most common problem I see in my shop on these cars are sway links and control arm bushings. I would suggest you take it to a competent front end shop and get it checked over. I hope this helps you. Take care........KL
That is a picture of a Porsche sway bar, but the idea is the same. Make sure all bolts are tight and that one end is not missing the linkage that connects it to the spring/strut. The grinding of the brakes may be the sound of the linkage piece touching the rotor. Sway bar is a logical solution to both issues.
If that doesn't fix the issue, put the front end of the truck on blocks or jack stands and have somebody wiggle the tire up/down and side to side while you inspect the mechanical components underneath. Other things to check may be the ball joints, tie rod ends and suspension bits.
Not a very detailed description, but assuming the rattle is in front it may be bad shocks. A quick test would be to push down hard on the left fron of the car and let go, if the car springs back up and just stays there the shock is fine but if it comes up and dips down once again the shock is bad, it should come straight back up and stay there. Repeat on the other side.
If it were a knocking noise it would possibly be a ball joint.
Hope this helps.
