I don't know if there the same but take a look at the u-joints on your steering shaft.
On my 2001 4X4 my shaft was wasted only after
about 5000 miles. There was a clunk like yours from any bump. Took 3 trips to dealer
to fix that problem. I won't mention how many times it's been at the dealer to fix axle shaft leak which started after 150 miles. Thank God for warranties!
ok this is funny.
my truck till a week ago still made that clashing noise on speed bumps or when off roading. I recently put on rancho 5000's on the truck and the noise went away. the truck rides a lot better then before and the only difference is that these new shocks are stock size. not for a 2inch lift. and after doing some research about shock sizes for my truck i was told by rancho that i should have been running a stock size shock because i just had a coil spacer on top of the spring. but rough country gave me way longer shocks compared to the stock size when i bought the lift. i dunno go figure maybe i have the first self healing dodge ram also i havnt heard that tranny noise in a long time from my torque converter.
Hey Rawkon, I have always wondered what exactly you mean by "custom engine mud guards". I wouldn't mind having something to keep water from splashing into my engine compartment. I'm just curious because it sounds like a good idea.
hello when I put my first lft.(2inch) they said to use my stock shocks but they would make a clunk sound when the shocks woul travel out.. I replaced mine also and cured the problem, I also made some custom extenders for my original shocks that were metric threads, I just wanted more controll. so I went with the rs9000
For my engine guards i just used a high heat rubber type material and i cut out holes where all the hoses, steering column are. they stop all the mud and water coming in from where the wheel wells are but i still need to make a guard for directly under the motor (im thinkin diamond plate or a light aluminum) cause i still get crap coming up and hitting the fan which in turns blows stuff all over the motor.
