Loud bang when brakes are appllied moving forward.

Same thing happened before when backing up and applied brakes. Found out the shims that sit in the vicinity of the upper control arm fell out. Shims are missing on rear bolt now. Why do they continue to fall out. ?Manufacturing defect?

I had the same problem after a wheel alignment. The control arm bolts were not properly torqued. These bolts will not back out if properly torqued. Your truck must be taken to an alignment shop for realignment.

Driving on my 2002 dodge ram 1500, 4.7l. Braked on stopped light hard a loud bang. Thereafter the truck won't move forward or reverse

Check your rear brakes for a broken retainer that's jamming the brakes. If that's good, look for broken drive shaft.

When i apply hard pressure on make a stop i get a loud banging clank noise from the front left.

if it only happens when you are braking I would start with taking the front left tire off and looking at the brake on that side you might have a loose bolt or a bolt could be missing also check your brake pads and make sure everything is in good shape. I would not wait with figuring out this problem if it is the brake and something brakes all together you could loose all of your brakes.

Why does the front left rotor thump when applying the brakes

May have a loose brake pad or caliper.
Brake pads usually have springs or shims that keep them from moving. Some people leave them off and there's some movement when you apply brakes.

The brakes on my 2001 rav4 squeak very loud but this only happens when putting the vehicle in reverse and backing. there is no noise when driving forward and applying the brakes

I would check the calipers. They may be loose or the pads may be unevenly worn. Take it to a brake shop that checks them for free.

Clutch problem

Its is totally acceptable to reuse a flywheel as long as it was machined to where a new finish was achieved.A machine shop will cut off about .020"-.050" to achieve a new,machined finsih.Same concept as turning brake rotors when performing a brake job.Have the clutch hydraulics checked,as this is what applies and releases the clutch when actuating the pedal.The clutch pedal engagement point is also adjustable up under the dash.One thing to remember when driving a manual trans vehicle is,for example,when sitting at a stop light.apply the brake and sit still.I can't tell you how many times i've seen people sit at a stop light,and rock the vehicle back and forth by applying then relasing the clutch pedal,causing the vehicle to pull forward a couple feet,then roll back a couple feet,pull forward,and roll back.This severely shortens the lifespan of the clutch,as it gets TOO hot.If at a traffic light,just apply the brake and sit still.There are correct and incorrect ways to drive a manual trans vehicle,all of which is determinate of how long the clutch will last.
