help! noise that sounds/feels like bad strut mount
I will start by saying i know i dont have struts or strut mounts but that is exactly what it feels like. When i drive over small bumps in a row, i get this light vibration feeling under my feet and a high speed rattle noise (very faint) that matches the feeling. If i were to compare it to something, it would be a broken strut mount in a dodge caravan. Ive seen other people have similar issues and it looks like the sway bar links are a popular culprit. Ive checked them both numerous times, loaded and unloaded. not loose and ball sockets dont appear to have any issues. Ive triple checked my ball joints and hub bearings and am not seeing anything loose or worn. Any other ideas?? my next step is to take off the sway bar links and drive it and see if the noise goes away.
EDIT: truck info is in sig. I also looked around the leaf spring bushings for rust or movement that would indicate metal on metal touching and couldnt see anything that stood out to me
