Front end clunk?
Hey guys, She's a 2000 F250 4x2 and having some noise issues in the front end. So, here is a short version. She has almost 250K miles on her.
Bought the truck, the alignment was far enough out to blow the front 2 tires and damage fenders, inner wells, etc.
After that happened, decided to replace all steering parts from the gear box to the knuckles, replace ball joints, and replace the wheel bearings and races. Yes, front end rebuild.
Had it aligned and she runs straight now, but I am still getting a clunk out of the front end when I hit bumps or pot holes at lower speeds. 50 mph or less.
It is a heavier clunk and not a body panel noise. What else could it be? Would old shocks be make a heavy noise? Maybe the bushing at the end of the suspension arm?
Any info would be great on this one.

Nothing more planned except pulling my toys.
