Found my "thud" causing issue....
Last night I found a thread on this site that got me looking for other possible issues with my front end.
I found that my front HUBS/bearings might be bad. The reason; I can move either of my front axle shaft up and down with my hand right at the U-joint. The U-joints are fine, there is zero play in the U-joint. However, there is at least a 3/8" movement in play from full up to full down in the axle shafts.
The play seems to be in the outer axle stub shaft that goes into the hub bearing. And it's the cause of the "thuds" while going over bumps.
Is that normal? I'm thinking NO.....
