Banging under truck

Ok guys Im feeling something banging under the truck. I can feel it really strong under my left foot when im driving. Im assuming its something to do with the front suspension/steering and is transferring the vibration through the shackle on the leaf (right below my left foot)

I've crawled under the truck a few times and tried wiggling things, nothing seems to be moving.

Any ideas?

thats what is wrong with mine, just havent got around to fixing it. quick test is disconnect the swaybar links and zip tie them up and out of the way, if it goes away that is your problem.

Or just crawl under the truck grab the sway bar and shake it up and down, if there is any loose i can almost guarantee you that is what your problem is !

Mine is doing this also. I checked everything and finally assumed it had to be a ball joint since everything else was tight. Well I changed all 4 and its still banging and popping everytime I turn the wheel and when I hit a bump while turning also. Tie rod ends?????

Plz help
