Front suspension


sounds like damaged shocks. if you push down on one side how long does it take for it to settle. should be 3 moves or less. any more then they are damaged. front dropping is a good sing they have failed. or not been set properly.

I am getting a huge clunk in the front end of my 1997 Ford F-250 when turning into a driveway with any type of dip to it.


That would be the frame rivets creaking and poking. You need the dealer to address this properly.

How can you tell when a shock absorberb is not good


if your vehicles bounces when u go over a bump your shocks are bad and in need of replacement. a good shock absorber should "absord" the bump thus keeping the vehicle from bouncing.

Had brakes done 4 wks ago; had them rechecked 7 days ago due to excessive squealing. I was told that I needed new ball joints, upper & lower. $800 later, my brakes still squealed and my left front...


The squeal is not caused by the ball joints. A lot of times it is caused by the kind of brake pads put in there or the brake disk needs to be turned. Honestly you should take it to an ase certified shop who knows what they are doing.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Clunking and knocking noise from rear when hitting bumps.


-it could be the sawy bar linkages
-but also check to see if the struts are leaking or that it looks damp
-but because you said it doesn't look like it bouncing when you hit a dip most likely it could be that the struts are dead
-check to see the cars ride hieght that would give you a clue

Loud noise/bang from the back of the car when going over bumps


You more than likely have one of two problems. One of your shock absorbers has a broken attachment bracket or 2) You have a broken exhaust bracket to your muffler. To check the shock just have the vehicle on a flat area motor turned off with emergency brake on and go to each side and "bounce" the vehicle using your body weight. Then to check the exhaust do this when motor is completely cool motor off emergency brake on and chock the tires so there is no chance the vehicle will roll. Get under the rear and attempt to move the exhaust assembly. If it moves to any degree side to side etc then it is this. If the vehicle bounces excessively when you bounce on it then it is the shock - repair accordingly. Hope this helps.
