Question about Dodge Pickup

Clicking when backing up and crunching when going over speed bumps

I don't know why the clicking sound when backing up. Also when you turn the wheel turning tight to the left or right or when getting into a parking space it mouns and groans. When going over speed bumps slowly or any speed the front end sounds like it is crunching. Is it falling apart? This is everyday.

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

Clicking noise - near side roof area, Saab 93 hatchback 2001


The only clicking sounds I'm aware of come from the top of the strut mount bearings that are worn out on older vehicles that tend to have over like 80,000 miles on them during certain turning or bumps. I don't know of that helps you or not.

Sounds like broken spring, or collapsed suspension strut, or collapsed wheel baring, or broken upper or lower control arm or extremely worn bushes, or all the above. what is it your driving? what sort of bumps? speed bumps? or 4x4ing bumps? or just general bumps in the road?

Center differential


What you are discribing sure sounds like CV (constant volocity) joint noise from the axle(s), diff's don't make crunching noises, they whine and howl when they go bad, I will say this about your problem, you did not have it before the work was done, so it's a fair guess it has something to do with the work done, make them fix it, do you agree?
