2004 dodge ram 1500 2WD front end making a metal on metal sound going over small surface bumps like rail road tracks. I have had trhe front end inspected 3 times for the possible cause. All garages tell me my front end is good and tight. There is no poping noise when turning or going forward or back wards. Shocks replaced last saturday. Is this possibly the sway bar.

My 2003 Trailblazer with 106,000 miles on it started to make a noise(kind of a clunking)toward the front periodically. Especially when you go in reverse for a ways and stop and then go right to drive. Then when you accelerate it makes this clunking or not such a good noise for a little bit. And sometimes when I'm coming to a stop the front wheels shimmy a little and it makes a noise too. Doesnt do it all the time. Any ideas?

Hello, My 2002 windstar has been making a clunking noise from the front end. I hear it more when going around turns, when there is more load on a side.
