If the sound is a thumping as you corner it is probably a torsion bar mount on the drivers side, fairly cheap and easy repair. Can't remenber weather it is the drivers or passenger side but one side you need to grind or cut down th bolt which attaches to the torsion bar. Have my 91 S10 blazer since 91 and have done several. Hope this helps.

In my 2004 ford explorer - when I let off the gas pedal I have a thumping sound. As soon as I hit the gas pedal again it quits. When it is coasting it is thumping.


I'm not sure what you mean by "Thumping". Please explain if this thumping is engine or body related. Try to describe the symptoms with more detail. Thumping to me, could refer to a Random Misfire, Internal transmission failure, Using the 4WD while on the wrong road surface or the tires are not all the same size, a defective U-joint (in the drive-shaft), a defect inside the rear drive-axle (ring&pinion), maybe a defect in a tire (not balanced or a bubble in the side-wall or tread), wheel bearing, ball-joint, tie-rod, or a needed alignment (observe if the vehicle pulls to one side and look for irregular tire wear). Let me know, good luck.

I think it is the control arm they can make thumping and other strange noises coming from under there when you hit the brakes and let them off while your driving. What it does will range depending on how bad they are. The car may also pull to one side.

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS
