Question about Dodge Ram 1500
I have a clickin noise that is constant unless a push the brakes. i also have a clunk or knocking noise i can feel in floorboard when hitting bumps but it doesn do it if im on the brakes
Take the brakes apart & clean up all rust,check everything out
& lube things when putting back together
Have to do that at least once a year
Don't need machining every year or new pads, but have to knock
down the edge on the rotors & get rid of rust & lube (anti-seize on
everything but inside the caliper slide bolts, there you use the synthetic caliper lube
The clunk could be worn drive axle joints or drive shaft joints
When your on the brakes or hit bumps your loading things differently & the clunk goes away

My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.

you must replace and lube the front sway bar bushings,chrysler service bulletin calls it a squak, but can sound like a rubbing, a clunk etc the common factor is this is really noticeable the colder it gets outside

its probably your sway bar end links, I had the same problem, I replaced both sides and the bushings and no more clunk noise

It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.
