Knowledgable and Experienced powerstrokers..HELP!
Ive spent hours and hours searching forums for an answer to my problem but everyone elses fix, doesnt fix my truck..........here goes
My truck makes a loud pop/thud when turning(mostly left) and especially if Im turning left and go thru any kind of dip or bump. Also, the initial pop is almost always followed by another one when I turn the wheel back straight as if the first pop is something that is put under a tension and then the 2nd pop is like the binding tension is relieved. The pop/bang is being transmitted right into the floor board where the drivers side rear shackle is directly under my feet.
Ive crawled under my truck dozens of times now looking for something loose or worn or making contact with something else. So far my efforts to eliminate the noise to no avail have been......
-replaced all 4 ball joints.
-replaced the leaf spring silencing plastic between the leafs
-checked shock mounts and tightened
-checked drag link and track bar. Retightened everything
-checked tie rods. Theyre not extremely tight, but I cant get any actual play out of them.
-sprayed wd40 on leaf spring eyes where they mount to shackles(no change in sound)
-disconnected sway bar and no change
PLEASE, ANY IDEAS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! Im running out of ideas.
