Change the Shocks in the front. That will take care of the clanging when you go over speed bumps and so on.

I have an 02 Dodge Ram 15002wd.I just had the front end aligned and new tires put on.Drives straight as an arrow problem is when I go over small bumps there is a constant clanking noise like something is...

Get it up on a ramp , Clank / Knocking can come from anything underneath , SILENCER, EXAHUST PIPES. If the clanking happened since your repair , and not before , take it back to the Garage / Workshop and tell them about the problem

Makes clanking while in reverse is it the struts or the u joint??

struts make a noise on bumps and rough roads. I would be looking at the "U" joints as they may be ready to fall apart.

Rattling, clanking sound over small bumps on drivers side front tires area when driving

Check the droplinks for the anti roll bar... some are like ball joints, and they can seize, which causes the symptoms you are getting.

How to fix death rattle? when i hit a bump in road the front wobbles

take it to an alignment shop and ask them for a list of all the front suspension components which are beyond their service life. most likely it will be all of them, and the price to replace them all will exceed the value of the car. when they get old, they get play in them which rattle and clank when you hit a bump. the fact that you have a wobble and the noise means you are close to a dangerous failure.

Truck making knocking noise in front end driver's side

Sound like metal clanking when going over semi rough road or bumps? Time to check your swaybar end links. Recommend using Moog end links as they are greasable. End links run from $20 ea to $70 each depending on brand. Moogs run about $37each. I would check front and back sway bar end links. Grab a hold of it and try jiggling it around, shouldn't be loose.

Hi I have a Rattling/clanking noise from the front end. 06 cobalt 4dr 105000 miles i recently had both shocks replace both control arm bushings and top strut mounts. it mostly occurs at lower speeds under...

this doe's sound like a c v joint problem, normally, they will make a popping, or clicking sound, but you do need to get this checked out before something serious happens . meaning the possibilty of losing a c v axle, or damage to the transaxle.

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.
