NO CLUE! CAN YOU GUYS HELP!!!!!

Hey guys. ever since i bought my truck its mad a "knock" when i turn. But its only when it rains. Its just one knock. no idea what it is. my whole front end was checked and worked on last year. ball joints races, bearings hubs, everything. whole 9 yards. what could it be? sounds like a ****ing leaf spring moving side to side.

I'm surprised no one has replied to this. I have the same issue when going up drive ways etc. It's a knock and it confuses the hell out of me BUT I do believe it's a sway bar issue. I need to double check it with someone else in the truck but i've ruled out exhaust and any front end issue as well as a leaf spring issue.

If the truck in question is the one reflected in your user name, i.e. an F-250, it's not a sway bar issue. Your truck, presuming it's stock, doesn't have one.
