    Like what doesn't make noise on these super duty front ends. x6 on the links. Those you can feel right under the floor boards. easier in the winter,i tell myself all the noise i hear is the plow banging around up front, not the front end...

    Mine has a clunk under the drivers floor board. It does it when going over a speed bump or when backing into my driveway and especially when the wheels are turned. Going down the road and it's fine. Dealer couldn't find it.... I'll check the stabilizer links.

    i've been having the same symptoms on my 1996 F350 for the past month or so. i was going to look into it this spring.

    i replaced my badly worn shackle bushings a couple of years ago with energy suspension poly bushings and they have held up great.

    i'll look for the energy suspension bushings for my sway bar, end links, and track bar while i'm at it. for under $50 and a few hours on a saturday, it's a no brainer.
