Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

My truck makes a loud thump from the front on the passenger side.

My truck makes a loud thump from the passenger front side whenever I slow to almost a complete stop or come to a complete stop. The loud thump also happens when slowing down when going over bumps. What could be the problem?

Most likely you have worn out suspension parts. A front shock could cause the problem because the rubber bushing holding it in place may have dried up and fell out. Upper and lower A-arms have rubber bushings as well.
Best to have the front suspension checked out before it gets worse.

    It turns out that one of the two main screws (about 3 1/2 inches long) in the passenger side front suspension had broken and the second one didn't break until later to have the truck sit on it's passenger side front. They have been replaced. Thanks to dsacco86 for the advice.

Sounds like a combination of a power steering pump (whine) AND the CV axle (loud clunk noise). Check the fluid level in the power steering pump. The pump is located on the passenger's side towards the firewall. Kind of hard to get at but unscrew the cover and there is a small/short dipstick there. See what it reads. Add Power Steering fluid (NOT transmission fluid, as needed. Don't overfill)
I'd get the "thumping noise" taken care of IMMEDIATELY. Could be a serious problem. Qualified front end shop should be able to diagnose and give you an estimate of cost. Last time I had one done it was about $300 parts and labor...
