Front end noise driving me crazy
I have a 97 F250 4x4 just recently I have developed a passenger side front end noise while stopping or going over bumps, in which case it is driving me crazy. It is very hard for me to describe the noise, the best way I can explain it is if you were driving down a dirt road at 40mph and you hit a pot hole with the front right tire and you can hear the suspension bottom out. When I am driving solo the noise is less but when I have a passenger the noise is significantly louder. Leaf springs seem to be ok, shocks are newer and only have 20k on them, ball joints and tie rods are new, hubs are newer. If i push down on the front end you can hardly hear the noise its just a slight bumping noise. I checked all the bolts on the shocks, leaf springs, tie rods and everything is tight. Sorry for the long post but this noise is driving me insane any help would be great. The only thing that might be worn is the leaf springs maybe, the truck has 264k I honestly do not know how long the leaf springs are good for.
