Sorry, ball joints will not contribute to the issue on a Ford truck. Tie rods are most common drag link. On lifted trucks or trucks with replacement gear boxes, a loose pitman arm. The nut has to be really tight. If it has been loose for a long time, the splines of the sector shaft could be damaged.

You probably have a loose front end. Check your tie rods and ball joints, also your wheel bearings and shocks. Shocks play a major part in how the front end handles on a rough road, as do worn out springs. If you determine something is loose in the front end, fix it immediately! I always consider front end problems to be safety issues.

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.

What r problems to be on the look out for on a 1999 chevy malibu with the 3100 v6 in it and there is a rattle when i hit bumps or rough road the struts are fine


Broken stabalizer links, broken stabilizer bar, and worn out stabilizer bar bushings are fairly common. As well as the rear bushings on the front lower control arms. A quick inspection of the front end and you should be able to tell if the links are bad, bar is broken, or the lower control arm bushings are separated. If the rear bushings on the front lower control arms are seperated the lower control arm will look like it is resting on the subframe.

Problem with my car " Toyota Corolla X - 2004


Do you hear the sound on a sharper sharp front, then stop, sharper reverse speed on a smooth road? Mine VW Jetta 84 does it, and it is caused by loose bolts (old rusty nuts can't tight), so that the whole front beam is loose. Hardly could be this on a 5-year car, but I have heard worse things for even newer, just the quality nowadays... If this is the reason, it is extremely dangerous, don't go past 50-60 km/h until you know the reason.

Clunky noise sounds from front end on 98 ford expedtion 4 wheel drive not always there just had new tranfer case put in.Not able to tell when he does sometimes and lower speeds or just when acclerating....


Fords are known for having Ball joint issues. they can cause noise if they are extremely loose. Sway bar links also can break causing a clunking too. I'd take it to a shop and have them do a front end shake down. 1/2 hour labor rate.

Front end feels loose and steering wheel shakes after going over rough terrain... what could it be.


Tie rod ends or ball joints. Possibly a control arm bushing failure but not as likely. Could also be caused by worn out shocks but usually that causes the truck to bounce up and down after hitting a bump.

Check engine light is on. Running rough. Makes a noise when brake is released.


Check Engine lights ofter notify us that there is an issue with our car. The rough running symptom is indicating the car's computer is causing the engine to operate in "Hobble Mode" so you can get it to the shop for diagnostics and repair.
