Front end clunk or rattle...

I have this annoying noise coming out of the front drivers side of my truck. It's only when I hit a bump. When I hit a bump it sounds like a clunk then it rattles. Just installed new shocks and it didn't fix it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Depends on your skillset and equipment. I just started doing mine earlier today with a different Energy Suspension kit. Took about 3 hours to do the front swaybar. That's a first attempt with a impact gun, shop press, torquewrench, getting tools out and putting them away. If I had a lift I could probably cut that by 30-45min. The leaf springs are going to be the most fun, which reminds me, I need to order new ubolts.
