Loose leaf springs?

When I hit a bump in my 04 f350 I hear a clunking noise in the front left side and can feel it a little bit on my feet. Could this be my front left leaf spring?

Check to see if the leafs are cracked if not its either ball joints or sway bar bushings. they make one hell of racket when they get bagged out.

More than likely it's the sway bar end links-they cause a hollow knocking sound when bad-just go underneath and try to pry the swaybar up and down. Any play and you need new ones.

The bushings for the swaybar should if the diameter is the same, however the endlinks are non rebuildable, and only cost around 40 bucks for both sides new.
