Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a clunking noise on the drivers side suspension. I just had new shocks put on,it helped for control but the noise(sounds like metal to metal) is still there.Any suggestions on what it might be? When I hit bumps on the drivers side it vibrates my headlight and causes it to burn out.

Metal clunking sound from rear suspension challenger r/t 2010


Sorry dude, it is hard enough trying to keep up with all of the clunks and bumps and squeaks and rattles that occur on vehicles with factory suspension parts. When modifications are made...it is anybody's guess.

All I can tell you is to diagnose the problem the way any auto technician would diagnose any other suspension noise...get it on a lift and perform a thorough inspection and/or have someone bounce the car up and down while you stick your head under it and see if you can tell where the noise is coming from.

I have a 2005 Trailblazer. I have had the stalilizer bar replaced, new ball joints, greesed the fittings on the ball joints. New calipers, rotos and branke pade. HOWEVER, I still have a clunking sound...


They are really bad for the lower control arm bushings causing a clunk noise. You can't see movement by checking on a hoist, but lubing them will help only temporarily. I did a lot of them under warranty, but being 2005 I'm sure yours has expired. I' would highly recommend changing them to eliminate the clunk noise.
