Front End Noise

Hey you guys! I have a 2004 f250 FX4 and when iturn the steering wheel to the left it seems to make a repetative clicking or thumping noise. It only does it when i turn the steering wheel to the left never to the right. You can here the noise in the cab moreso than outside but it is noticeablein both places. It only started doing this after I had my Leveling kit installed and the truck has 71000 miles. But ive checked and nothing rubs any suggestions would be nice. Thanks guys.

sounds like tie rods or wheel hub, raise the front end and push and pull on the tire if there is play its the hubs, grab the tie rod and shake the crap out of it, if there is play bingo again

well, I am not sure if our trucks differ here. but it should be the same concept. Find the power steering pump, and follow the rods down, the tie rod will come acros the front axle and turn the wheels.

Take a look at your sway bar end link bushings I bet they are worn out. I just went through the exact same thing with my rig

The tie rod and the wheels are all tight... But there is a rod that connects up to the steering column ( maybe pittmann arm) but when u shake it the joint makes a clicking or clanking noise... i am going to try to replace that piece tomorrow... and see if that is the problem... any more suggestions would be helpful... that is the only thing under the front end i can find that makes a noise...
