Believe me the noise going over bumps is your left and right tension struts. Manufacturer has changed these parts three times cause the bushings go on them. Big problem with magnums. I changed mine at home. No noise and car rides way better.

    aftermarket sway bar end links from bwoody( get oversize washers to protect the bushings as these are made for the SRT),some good outer tie rod ends(greasable) like moog. and you will be happy..While you are in there might want to replace the upper and lower ball joints. OEM on these cars are poor quality and just can't handle a two ton car.

2005 dakota replacing front sway bar no replace ment part diagram

7585000029_large.jpg Sway bars are installed by removing your factory end links and sway bar. Re-install the new bushings and position your new sway bar on the vehicle in the OEM location and secure it with the same bolts.

I need to replace the linkage for my front sway bar or stabilizer bar linkage, im not sure which its called but no parts store can find the part in there system. What is it im looking for?

That is strange. Typically you are looking for bushings. but sometimes the links, washers, bolts and nuts need replacement also. Moog makes what you need, aftermarket and the dealer sells what you need. I prefer aftermarket, it usually lasts longer.
Try another parts store, what you seek should be in suspension parts...

Something on the front 'clunks' when I hit a small bump in the road, what could possibly be wrong?

I had the same problem. It was the front sway bar bushings. I took it to the dealer when it was still under warrantee. The replaced everything from struts to the steering linkage. And it still made the annoying knocking noise. I was changing the oil one day and while I was under the car I started looking where the noise was coming from. I grabbed the sway bar and pulled on it. It was loose. I bought bushings for about $12 and that fixed it.
Hope this helps

My Pontiac Sunfire has a rattle near the front left tire area while driving. Could this be a strut or spring problem? Can hear it most when coasting on a bumpy area.

It could be a worn or broken sway bar link or sway bar bushing. Inspect all the suspension parts such as the steering linkage just to be safe, but pay attention to the sway bar system. Mainly the bushing and replace any that is damaged or worn with urethane bushings, they cost a bit more but last a life time of the car. Good luck and hope this helps.

My 2004 F-150 2WD is making a clanking noise on front left tire

The sway bar linkage probably came undone on one of the sides. Wikipedia has a picture of what your sway bar linkage may look like:

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.

2003 Dodge Caravan Front end clunk.

Had similar problem with 2003 Dodge GC. Replaced the parts you mention + rack & pinion, then to fix the now noticable whining noise, replaced power steering pump and pulley. Fortunately was under an extended warrentee at 46k miles.

The bushings for your sway bar is most likely worn out.
